FARR integration into Vista as Default Search!
« on: June 22, 2007, 01:27:32 PM »
In case people haven't heard already....

Newest update (well 2 days ago) from Microsoft.  To comply with federal anti-competitive charges from 2002, Microsoft has agreed to make changes to the integrated search bar in Vista.  These changes will allow end users to change the default desktop search engine more easily, and it appears that it will allow more integration.  Just think, FARR right in the start bar and explorer search bar instead of just a hotkey.  More options, same great program  :D

What is FARR? Never heard of it...
I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.
