Search Macros vs Swickis

There is are so many customized search engines out there. We had the original Swickis, and now the Window Live team has come out with the Search Macros.

My only gripe about these macros is that it is very hard to discover what other search macros are available.

I have found this one that was created by the SQL Server 2005 BOL (Books Online Library) team.

One click and you get access to the latest version of the books online. Versus:
  1. downloading a 130+ MB msi file
  2. installing it
  3. opening CHM file to get to search prompt
If you are at a client site and need to research some sql info on the fly. I believe the Search Macros would be the winner.
