Storing Searches

 < Day Day Up > 

Sometimes after you perform a search, it would be nice to save the search results. There are many reasons for doing this, but for the sake of argument, let's say you just finished a complex search and were then called away from your computer.

Using Firefox's bookmarks, you can save a search by selecting Bookmarks, Bookmark This Page in Firefox's menu. You are prompted for a name for the bookmark; you can either use the default (the search engine name with the search terms appended) or give the search a more meaningful name.

Figure 3.10 shows a Google search and the Add Bookmark window. The name, Google Search: hena-c shepard, is the default name for the search.

Figure 3.10. First, search with Google; then when the results are displayed, add a bookmark for the search.
