An alternative to bing
Don't know if you're aware of this, but I have just been pointed to lucene.apache.org/ which is a free, open source search engine.
Is this something that webassist is able to create an installer for to make it easy to implement?
I assume there would be some sort of copyright or licensing issue to sort out, but if you are just creating an extension that helps us to install it I can't see that being a hurdle... it's much like the method of the extensions that install google maps, google search, or the Bing search itself.
Thought I'd share it with you as I am told it is a very good open source search facility that is hosted on our websites, and will always work rather than have to rely on a remote service and hope it remains in service and remains unchanged.
