Does anyone know of a program or an easy way to perform a search of just a few chosen sites? I often come across a program I'm interested in and I like to see if that program is available for download via other sites and what reviews/opinons are available on other sites I frequent. It would save a lot of time to be able to search 4 or 5 sites at once rather than having to visit each site and use its search tool.
I had a look at Google's Custom Search Engine and it appears I would have to have a website in order to use it. That's not what I'm after.
I had a look at Google's 'Advanced Search' and it has an option to 'Search within a site or domain', however it only gives results for one domain. I tried using a semi-colon between domain names but it still only gave results for the first domain.
Also, I found a comment about about a toolbar that has the function '…Lushe allows you to easily build a list of your favourite sites, and then search only those sites using google…', however its WOT rating is very poor so I won't enter that site. Lastly, I found a Windows gadget called 'mini-explorer' that does sound like it will do the job, but it's only for Vista/Windows 7 and not XP which I still have.
