davak I'm addicted to tweaks, hints, and tutorials...

I appreciate Shaggy mentioning one of my tutorials on his blog today.  I attempted to leave a comment on his blog, but I could never get it to post.  He was talking about changing the msn search to default to google.  Since I could not leave it there, here was my response:

Thanks for the mention.  Google is still winning the search engine war.  Here's the exact link to changing the default search engine in the MSN Desktop Search:

You guys probably won't need the step-by-step directions. Just do this for google...

In MSN Desktop Search select...

Desktop Search Options -> General -> Other Search Services -> http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=$w

I agree with you completely regarding the tab browsing.  I wish they would have left it in beta for a while longer... and only rolled it out once it was more stable and flicker free.  Overall, however, this new search tool is my favorite new Microsoft progie this year.
