I wrote tiny application, and I thought I’d share it with ya’ll. It’s called SearchApp. It’s basically a dialog that points search terms toward your favorite search engine. I use it in conjunction with LaunchBar. I hit cmd-space-se – then type in my search and hit return. It will launch your browser if need be, or open the search in a new window if a browser is already running. It also has an editor so you can add your own search engines.
I’ve released an update to SearchApp that fixes the previous bug reported by MH (and a few emails). I’ve also added a clear text box button ala the finders search box – it’s pictured.
