I am using Internet Explorer and Firefox.
"Google Chrome" has an extension.
There is add-on also in "Firefox".
However, an additional function is not provided in Internet Explorer.
When something is added to "Search Providers" of Internet Explore, "TEST" is input to the retrieval item usually.
For example, "http://saf.li/create?url=TEST."
I want to add "McAf.ee" to "Search Providers".
How is "Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer" done?
Please tell me if there is any good way.
Are you trying to use the search providers box to shorten URLs? Not sure that's going to work, but from the The McAf.ee API document you'd use
In Internet Explorer to add a search provider you go to Tools/Internet Options/General and click Settings next to Search.
On that page go to bottom and click 'Find more search providers'
That takes you to the online gallery.
At the bottom of that page click "Create Your Own Search Provider"
You get this page: http://www.ieaddons.com/ca/createsearch.aspx (change language accordingly at top right)
There you can enter the URL of the Search provider.
The problem with McAf.ee is, it is not a Search Provider, it is only a URL shortener, so Internet Explorer doesn't recognize it as a Search Provider at all.
Safeboot, what she is looking for is a McAf.ee add-on for Internet Explorer, is there one?
Thank you for SafeBoot.
I was able to get the results wanted.
When there is not add-on of Internet Explorer, I often add items to the following address search providers.
Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer
If there is add-on so that you say , I am surely glad.
hmm it could be a good idea if we have an add-on for IE- I am sure Support will find it good .
Thanks Vinod, perhaps you can push for that to be introduced as there are several other URL shorteners already listed as IE Add-ons.
They took down the page on Microsoft's website. I did find another website with this script on it here:
It does the same thing. So you might want to SAVE IT to your computer so you can use it.
