First Look: Search with Internet Explorer 9

1:40 /

Internet Explorer 9 has integrated search into the address bar. Seth Rosenblatt takes a First Look.

When Microsoft upgraded Internet Explorer to version 9, they made a ton of changes. One of the best was integrating search into the location bar. Hi, I'm Seth Rosenblatt for CNET and today I'll show you how to use IE9's new search. Microsoft wants us to call this new combined location and search bar the OneBox which is hilarious, so we're sticking with the location bar. Start typing into the location bar and the drop-down immediately appears. It gives you a list of related results from your history and favorites and a list of suggestions if you've enabled it. You can enable suggestions at the bottom of the search box. Note, though, that when you enable suggestions, your keystrokes do get sent to your search engine. If the first result is the one you want, you can hit shift plus enter to go to it even before you finish typing. Hit one of these little arrows on the side to get more results. You can also toggle your search engine. IE9 comes with Bing and Google, although I've seen some installations that also have Amazon, Facebook, and Yahoo. Simply click on one to switch it or hit the add button to jump to Microsoft's IE Add-ons page and add a different engine, like Wikipedia, or Wookieepedia, if you're Star Wars inclined. I have no idea if the fine folks behind Wookieepedia have created an IE9 add-on, but if they haven't, they could. And be sure to check out our other IE9 how-to videos. For CNET, I'm Seth Rosenblatt.
