[prMac.com] Madison, Wisconsin - Josh Lockhart today announced RapidSearch 3, an upgrade to his popular RapidWeaver search plugin. RapidSearch 3 is the easiest way to add powerful Google(TM) search to any RapidWeaver website. RapidSearch 3 retrieves Google(TM) search results immediately and displays the search results inline on your website. Your visitors never leave your website, and your branding remains intact.
New! Customizable Search Button: RapidSearch 3 users may now customize the search button's text. Instead of using the default label "Search", the search button can now read "Go" or "Find" or any text in any Mac OS X supported language.
New! UTF-8 and URL-Encoded Character Support: Many RapidSearch users create HTML search forms in their website headers or sidebars. These forms may or may not be on the actual RapidSearch page. For English and Western text, this technique works. However, Eastern, Oriental and similar text (ie. German Umlauts, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc) become URL-encoded when an external HTML form is submitted to the RapidSearch page. RapidSearch 3 now supports UTF-8 and URL-encoded characters.
New! Deactivate Serial Number from within RapidSearch: This is a very popular feature request. RapidSearch 3 users may now deactivate a serial number from within RapidSearch 3. Users no longer need to send an email request for a reactivated serial number. Instead, uses can enter their serial number into RapidSearch 3 and click "Deactivate". Users may then transfer RapidSearch 3 to a new computer and reactivate the search plugin using the same serial number.
Other Feature Highlights:
* Integrated Google(TM) search
* Highlight search terms in results with custom colors
* Custom page header and footer
* Search one or many websites
* Drag-and-drop to sort websites
Minimum System Requirements
* Mac OS X 10.5 or later
