Robin Good waxes poetic about Google's desktop search - a little toolbar that sits in your taskbar and gives you instant access to search without having to launch your browser. Instead, it launches a Google Browser; because of this capacity Good notes "the Google browser appears to me as a significant and insofar unnoticed competitive weapon in Google's hands." Never one to leave things alone, I quickly added Edu_RSS and OLDaily to the custom searches. You can too: once you have the toolbar installed, click 'Options', then select the 'Customized Searches' tab. Click 'Add...' Now, here are the URLs for OLDaily and Edu_RSS - right-click on these and paste them into the 'URL' box in the Custom Search Description screen. To use, type your search term, then select OLDaily or Edu_RSS from the list of custom searches.
