Easily Add Custom Search To Google Toolbar

    January 31, 2006

Forget waiting for your favorite website to create a Google Toolbar button, Matt Cutts shows you how to make your own.

Its really simple, just right-click in a search box on any website and click “Generate Custom Search” and you get your button. It even grabs the page’s favicon for the button. You can go in afterwords and use the custom button editor to hand edit the XML and change any search parameters, creating all sorts of wild and crazy searches. I just added a button to search my own Bloglines subscriptions.
