Tip of the day: new "Diigo + Google" search box

We have implemented some new changes to the toolbar search box.  As you start to type a word in the search box in the toolbar, the new “Diigo + Google” search will smartly auto suggest keywords from your diigo “My Tags + Search History” plus “Goolge Suggest“:

Your search result is displayed in two columns:  Google search result on the left, and result from your “My Diigo library” and Diigo community library on the right.

To access this search and other new toolbar features, make sure to get our latest toolbar installed (FF Version: 4.1.0.14 or IE Version: 4.0.2) at the Diigo Tools section: http://www.diigo.com/tools

========
Note 1:   some users may have the search box setting hidden.   If you don’t see the search box on your toolbar,  here is how to enable it:

  • Go to toolbar:   Diigo >> Toolbar options

  • Under “Select Toolbar Buttons”, make sure the “Search” box is checked.  Click Ok to save the setting

========

Note 2:  the “Multi-Category Search & Customized Search Menu” is being disabled in our latest toolbar version (click those 2 links to learn more.) Since currently there are only very few users taking advantage of that particular feature but it’s quite troublesome for us to maintain the ongoing support,  we’re re-evaluating to phase it out.   As with any software service provider, there are a lot of backend computing considerations and we always have to weight out the pros vs. cons for various features support.

During the evaluation period, for those users who still want to have access to the Customized Search feature, please install this “classic version” instead: http://www.diigo.com/tools?version=firefox_classic    Meanwhile,  if you feel strongly that we should consider keeping this feature, please email and share with us more feedback on how you use it and ways that you think we can improve it.   Thanks!
