FlexLauncher 1.1 by jsmorley FlexLauncher 1.1 by jsmorley
Small application launcher that doubles as an input to one or more search engines.

You set up the "aliases" for programs you want to run in [Variables] in the skin.

If you enter one of the program "aliases", the corresponding application you defined will be run.

If you enter some input that is not one of those programs, then a search will be done in your browser using Google*.

If you start the input with a defined search engine (defined in FlexLauncher.lua, see that file to add or change them) and a colon ":" (i.e. "Yahoo: funny cats") then the search will be done in your browser using the defined search engine. The ":" EngineDelimiter can be changed in [Variables].

Requires the latest Rainmeter 3.0 beta** from

* The default use of Google for searches can be changed by changing the URL for the table value "default" in the .lua file.

** Unicode input is fully supported in the skin.

Currently supported search engine "aliases":

google: = Google search
gimages: = Google Image search
bing: = Bing search
bimages: = Bing Image search
yahoo: = Yahoo search
wiki: = Wikipedia search
news: = Google News search
maps: = Google Maps search
tube: = YouTube search
rdocs: = Rainmeter Documentation search

This is perfect. It allows any amount of items while taking up barely any space. All other launchers take lots of grief with the trying to find pictures and everything, and this just allows you to set a name and put the link, and then you can easily access stuff...awesomeness :D
