Searching - Wikiwidget

Description: Wikiwidget quite simply provides you with a text box you can type in, enter whatever you want and a Safari should appear pointing toward the Wikipedia entry for whatever you want, handy for those "need to know" type situations!

Very nice, andy... especially like the left-hand graphic... sort looks like the "Death Star". I'll definitely be using this one!

Great widget! It works well, and I love the look of it. I did notice that the drop shadow is cut off on the right side. Not a big deal, but I thought I should point it out. Nice work!

This is a great widget save for one thing: you can not search with spaces...

For example if you enter "Zeus" it will take you to the Wikipedia page on Zeus.... but if you enter "Buddy Guy" it does nothing. You have to enter "Buddy+Guy" for it to work....

i would like you to include the option to chose the site, where the word is searched (i mean en, de, etc...)

Good idea for a design, but you simply did not make it work. Miss that you can't add eg. "no", "de" etc. infront of the search-URL. So that it'll be able to search trough localized versions of Wikipedia.
