Redirect search to Google

    Question

  • I was looking for this article I came across some time ago in the Windows Forms General Forum: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/winforms/thread/8b896eba-9f0e-45d7-85c6-6230dd3e713e/

    So I went to the Windows Forms General Forum and in the Search Windows Forms General Forum text box I entered "AutoUpgradeEnabled exception" (without quotes).  It returned nothing!

    I then went to Google and entered the exact same two words.  Viola!  The first result was the exact article in Windows Forms General Forum.

    How about modifying search in MSDN Forums to do a HTTP POST to Google and return all those links with IndexOf("http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums")>=0 as results?  This will save users having to switch back and forth between two windows.

    Thanks

    This will be redundant code because you could right click and search with Google in Mozilla and in IE the right click and search option uses Bing.
