IE Google Panel?

 2:38 am on Oct 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

I've run into quite a few of these referers lately:


I take it that is from a custom IE search panel?
Is that available for dl? Where is it on Google?

Some users have been modifing their registry to use IE6.0 search panels with google.

I have not tried this, but here is what reg keys they say to change:

[HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Search Page"="http://www.google.com"
"Search Bar"="http://www.google.com/ie"

[HKEY CURRENT USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL]

[HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search]

I have no idea if this works or gives you the referer you've seen, but it seems likely.

Well, I've seen the Google one for Netscape, I just didn't know Google had one already setup for IE. Do you know if they have docs on this any where on Google?

Hi Brett

It's just a google search on the word foo. Are you looking for the google toolebar?
The toolbar has a search option
You find the toolbar here [google.com...]

But that comes out as a form value "navclient".

This is specific to IE I think: [google.com...]

I think msr986 has the right idea here.

The rumour is that if you download the Google toolbar on IE6 it will automatically change the default search. Can anyone confirm?

I have IE6 and Google toolbar

Default search is still MSN

if you download Yahoo's instant messenger, it changes to yahoogle, from MSN.

It's a little irritating to me, though. Now the request bounces off two large, corporate servers if I mistype something...grr.

The above referral string isn't wide spread yet.

links to google.com/ie [google.com]

maybe this is the answer [groups.google.com]

I tried it but no go. My guess is with that google.com/ie section is we will see an update to IE with Google in the search options
