Description michaelkoechling 2007-05-06 10:51:04 UTC
The Menu "Extras" - "Optionen" - "Internet" - "Suche" has unsuitable Entrys. The
Seaches mapped to english users and obsolete Engines.

The following entries are obsolete: -> This is the Yahoo Search since Yahoo! eat -> They use Google... so why use an Search Page which use Google -> What is -> Will be with &lr=lang_de and &hl=de -> Uses -> Use the german Version of Lycos -> Use the german version of Yahoo   -> Add it and use the german version of

Google hold ~ 90% of the Search Market in Germany.
Other known Search Providers are Yahoo, MSN.


T-Online - Uses Google
AOL - Uses Google
Lycos -
Ask -

Btw. What does P2 means? low? trivial? I'm new to this.
Comment 4 kami911 2007-05-08 16:57:17 UTC
Ok, let's collect the required search engines. Are there any way to make the
searches language depended? For example the search enigens' interface language
should depend on UI language.

Hi kami,

lets go... this are the URLs of the Search Pages with the vars Pages in german
and Pages in germany

Google - == German UI
# lr=lang_de == Pages in german

Yahoo! - == German UI
# meta=vl%3Dlang_de == Pages in german

MSN - == German UI
Can't see whats the vars for german results are

ASK - == German UI

# &dm=lang == May be results in german

Just one idea for Google: 
 Removing language relevant parameters would be one of the solutions.

   ooInetSuffix: %22
   ooInetCaseMatch: 0
   ooInetSeparator: %20

 The above settings seem to work with Japanese as well as English.
