Q.  What Google URLs should I use?

A.  Sometimes you want to use a link to a Google search.
Here's how:

http://www.google.com/search?q=hello+world	- Link to search results
http://www.google.com/webhp?q=hello+world	- Get the user ready to begin a search
http://www.google.com/images?q=red+rose		- Link to image search results
http://www.google.com/images?q=red+rose&tbs=vid:1	- Link to video search results
http://www.google.com/firefox			- Search page for Firefox users
http://www.google.com/intl/en/			- Search page in English that
doesn't redirect to a Country-specific page
https://www.google.com				- SSL search page
https://wave.google.com				- Google Wave
http://lmgtfy.com/		- Let me Google that for you


You can use this HTML has your personal start page:

<h2>Google Search</h2>
<form action=http://www.google.com/search>
<input type=text name=q>
<input type=submit value=Search>
</form>

Bing is almost the same:

<h2>Bing Search</h2>
<form action=http://www.bing.com/search>
<input type=text name=q>
<input type=submit value=Search>
</form>
