When I wrote my post about Exalead releasing a new home page the other day I mentioned that you can add up "favorites" to your Exalead home page. Shortcuts allow you to view a hyperlinked static images of up to 18 pages to the Exalead home page.
OK, that's cool but why mention this again? Because it gets cooler. You can turn these "favorites" into direct links that allow you to run the a search in other engines like Google, MSN Search, whatever engines you like, without having to reenter your search terms. With some extra "hacking" you could create all sorts of interersting "specialty" searches. Technically, Exalead calls these "Smart Bookmarks." Setting them up is easy. I've prepared a page of step-by-step instructions here.
Unfortunately, at least for now, your shortcuts are only available on one specific computer. Hopefully, this will change soon and Exalead can initiate a login procedure to let you move your favorites from one computer to the next.
