I have been using the google toolbar sow I can search fast an easy without having to go to any website, but have been missing the ability to do the same with others search engines.

Have now discovered that you can search from the EI address field. Only need to do some small registry changes.

For example if you add this you can search google by typing "g SeachTerm"
Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchUrl\g
Value: http://www.google.com/search?q=%s

If any one is interest have I made this http://www.boitho.com/div/IESearch.reg registry script that adds these search engines:

b - boitho.com
i - imdb.com
g - google.com
a - alltheweb.com
gi - gigablast.com

Now you can easy type "g word" in the address field to search google for "word", "b word" to search boitho for "word", etc...
