Hi, I must I was more than excited when I ran into this program. Being
a Mac nerd at home, and using Quicksilver all the time, I have been
looking for an alternative for Windows at my work.

Can you use the web search function to search via/with other websites
than Google?

Or lets say that I would like to be able to search within a wiki on a
certain domain. Would I be able to integrate that in a clever way into
Colibri?

Just tried changing the theme to Quicksilver. Whoah, this is really
nice.

"clever", but not exactly linear :-) you need to use a SQLite editor
to add the search you need to the "Search Engines.sqlite" database,
and if you want add the 2 icons for it in the "Colibri\Art\Search
Engines" directory.

Look in the tips page of the group for an editor, and other
suggestions

Hi Dreadnaut,

Thank you for the answer. It worked like a charm. I am now able to
perform a search within our local Wiki here at work via Colibri.
Only other functionality I was hoping for was that it would be
possisble to display the search results directly within Colibri,
instead of having a browser open and displaying them. But I guess that
is too much to ask for from Colibri?

You are asking for a scriptable html parser, and that's probably too
much :-)

If you are ready to meddle with javascript, you can take a look at
Ubiquity ( https://ubiquity.mozilla.com/ ), an extension for Firefox.
