I forgot how to add search engines to the search function in SM. How do you do it?
I added dogpile once and never found the option to do it again.

BTW, any other recommended search engines?

Thanks!

Filter for Sherlock format search engines (the ones with the apple logo).

So OpenSearch implementation is not a core Gecko function?
Gecko
One Rendering Engine to rule them all.

For the firefox search bar, try this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/3767 it works in SM 2.0 if you disable version checking

Thanks, Wildcard. I'm not to crazy about adding an add-on that is no longer being maintained into a beta browser though. I sure wish someone would continue with MonkeyMenu. I May give it a shot, though anyway.

Because I use many search engines when on Firefox, and using a bookmark/bookmarklet is too much real estate. And besides,
the ability to add search engines is suppose to work. I didn't realize that only those with the "apple" logo would work. Seems
most of what I'd want for a search engine with the apple logo aren't in English or just isn't available with the apple.

I long for the customizable search bar like in Firefox.

From my Firefox 3.5.1:

Which is one reason I use Firefox when I'm searching for things. SeaMonkey is in dire need of a search functionality overhaul.
The combination of "manage search engines" and the Firefox extension Add To Search Bar make Firefox's search function the
best of any browser, bar none.

I started a thread in SeaMonkey Builds about 2.0 and search here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1380105

I don't know about SM2, but can't you just copy the .xml file from the FF profile over to the SM profile? Thats what I did in SM1 to get one of them working.
