Go to Google and install their toolbar. It's excellent - I use it constantly.

Then to make things easier when your searching lets say you want to search for something mentioned on a webpage...

For example: PCAdvisor

Instead of typing that into the tool bar.

Highlight the PCAdvisor and right click and choose "Google Search".

Now its not there by a default installtion you have to choose to have it on the right click.

To do that on the toolbar click the "Google" button on the right, the first item of the toolbar. Go down to "Toolbar Options"...

Now check the two cirlces next to:-

"Open a new window to display results each time you search"

and

"Add Google-related items to the browser's right-click context menu. Note: Changes to this option will not take place until you restart your browser"

Go to the bottom and click "ok".

Now that will add the right click google search and new searches will open in a new window.

There are other interesting things that you can do with Google. For example if you enter click here it will give you one hit (of course) but then these options

Show Google's cache of click here

Find web pages that are similar to click here

Find web pages that link to click here

Find web pages that contain the term "click here"

Due to the wonders of IE if you pretend to be American you get far more search options. Go into Internet options and click on the languages tab, add English [United States][en-us] and move it to the top of the list, OK the selection and OK the Options screen. Then open Search, click on customize and you will find that the list of search agent options has increased dramatically .
