Searching your SharePoint sites with Internet Explorer 8

IE8 follows the FF path and has a customizable Search Toolbar that can be plugged into a SharePoint instance. Start by clicking on the “Find More Providers” menu item on the drop down in the IE8 search toolbar area.

On the bottom of the Providers screen you can find a link: “Create your own Search Provider”. So if you want to add your SharePoint search page to the IE toolbar, follow the on-screen directions; enter SharePoint search result URL after typing TEST - e.g. http://intranet/search/Pages/results.aspx?k=TEST .

Now you’re able to use your SharePoint search site directly from your browser
