Add the ESV Bible to Your List of Search Providers in Internet Explorer 7

Internet Explorer 7 came out on Wednesday (October 18, 2006). Here’s how to add the ESV to the list of search engines you can use directly from the browser.

  1. Open Internet Explorer 7.
  2. Go to http://www.gnpcb.org/esv/. (Now’s a good time to make use of tabbed browsing if you’re reading this blog in IE7. Right-click the previous link and choose “Open in New Tab” or click the link using the scroll wheel on your mouse. Now the blog is in one tab and the ESV text is in another. Switch between the tabs as necessary to follow these instructions.)
  3. Click the down arrow next to the magnifying glass in the upper right corner.
    The dropdown menu lets you pick search providers.
  4. Hover over “Add Search Providers” and choose “ESV Bible” from the submenu.
    This type of mouse maneuver requires some precision.
  5. Click the “Add Provider” button in the dialog box that appears.
    You probably want to keep an Internet search engine (like Google) as your default search provider.
  6. Now choose “ESV Bible” from the dropdown menu next to the search box whenever you want to search the ESV.
    Search the ESV wherever you are on the Internet.

If you ever want to remove it, choose “Change Search Defaults…” from the same dropdown menu you just used.

This feature is IE7-specific at the moment, but the forthcoming Firefox 2.0 browser will have something similar. (We currently have a plugin for Firefox 1.5 and below.)

  2. The ESV Blog posts on how to Add the ESV to Your Search Bar in Firefox 2.0. This is really easy to do. I’ve found it very helpful to have it right in my toolbar. (To do this in Internet Explorer 7.0, see this post.)

  6. Wow, I’m impressed that the ESV bible people is so up-to date with software. Internet Explorer 7 (IE7) came out (the final version) on Wednesday and almost immediately they have a blog post for a search provider.
