[EN] How to add your own search provider in IE7


I'm not sure if you noticed that at below URL

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/searchguide/en-en/default.mspx

where generally you can add some custom predefined search providers for IE7 you can also create your own custom search provider.


Quick test with Polish news&media portal called Onet.eu resolved in below Xml which is indeed search provider definition:


 <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<OpenSearchDescription xmlns="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/">




  <ShortName>Onet.EU</ShortName>


  <Description>Onet.EU provider</Description>


  <InputEncoding>UTF-8</InputEncoding>


  <Url type="text/html" template="http://szukaj.onet.pl/query.html?qt={searchTerms}" />

</OpenSearchDescription>

Simple, huh? 🙂
