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

[google.com...]

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]
""="http://www.google.com/keyword/%s"

[HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search]
"SearchAssistant"="http://www.google.com/ie"

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...]

Kim

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?

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]

[searchengineworld.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
