Select your native language or mother tongue from the language popup menu
Even if you are searching the entire web rather than a language space,
this will allow Spacesearch to provide a
search engine interface in the language you speak where possible.
Select your favourite search engine
If you require help on using the search terms, press the ?
to bring up help information from your selected search engine.
Select the space to search
This will normally be all the web or all of recent usenet traffic.
We appreciate suggestions for useful spaces.
Do you want to narrow your search to a certain language?
If you wish to search for content in a specific language, select that language
from the popup menu and click the 'search texts in this space' button -
otherwise leave 'search all this space' checked.
Type in your query if you haven't already, and press Find.
If the search engine you have selected is too slow, just select another search engine and press Find again.
Power user tips
Once you have a window full of search results, we
suggest using your rightmost mouse button (or holding your Mac's mouse button down)
over search results to get a 'New Window with this link' option. This allows
you to have a single window containing search results, while getting and
examining many possible useful pages at once.
Spacesearch supports transparent boolean searches on Altavista, Excite, and
Hotbot. To bring up Altavista's Advanced Help page, first type a boolean
search string - then press the ? help button. Boolean
terms must be in CAPITALS for Excite and Snap.
