Hi elaimoon,

Quick answer is no! JavaScript would let you access the open page only. You would need a server side language to develop something like this yourself (ASP, JSP, PHP, Perl/CGI etc.).

For sites with less than 500 pages, atomz provides a site search. You could also use Google or some other free search script.
