Search Standard

Sherlock, first described in the October 16, 1998 Scout Report, is the new search tool provided by Mac OS 8.5 which allows users to perform searches of Websites without opening a browser. One of the great advantages of Sherlock is its ability to create a plug-in for any Web-based search engine. Since the release, the collection of Sherlock plug-ins has grown to number over 250. A few sites have taken up the task of collecting and organizing these plug-ins. While the Apple-Donuts site is a bit more polished than the others, all three of these sites provide fairly complete listings of the available plug-ins.
