Web search engine out there that works with CAB?

Post by Beej »

Does anyone know if there are any search engines left that will work with older browsers like CAB?

Google doesn't work for me, when I hit the search button it waits for data that never comes?

I use CAB 2.7e with a STing setup. Which ovl do you use and where can I find it?
I was able to find 1314B.OVL and 11401.OVL variants on old backup disks.

Hope to try livewire and links pretty soon.

yahoo does not work... seems to want to download some file.... :(
Previously before that, I remembered yahoo insisted that I upgrade my browser and refuse to sent me any other pages. :roll:

I know about the Problem with CAB & Google... it just get's the headers and then restarts transfer... endless looping.

But you can use a different page for google or create your own start page... than it works :) I use a page like this one:
http://start.ubuntu.com/10.04/Google/

OK, I'm not sure if that page works with CAB, but you got the idea ;)

Never tried it but Altavista always seemed to be reasonably bare bones.
