Search Engine Request - WorldCat

Post by rodndtube » 2020-11-02, 21:59

This is a search engine that I use that would love to see in Basilisk, and used to included in Firefox and is in my FireFox.

WorldCat is the world's largest library catalog, helping you find library materials online

Thanks!

You might try the Mycroft Project:

A little quirky but after a few attempts it worked. Thanks!!

You can also use the !worldcat bang by DuckDuckGo.

Directly going to the site via search plugin beats going via DDG. Bangs are fine for a certain other browser and its descendants that doesn't support search plugins or quick searches :P

Yeah, I'm just suggesting a way for those who are too lazy to install those search plugins. :D
