If you like the idea of the Unix-Netscape Everything Search Button but are OS or browser challanged, here is the javascript that will work for Internet Explorer on Windows:

javascript:q=(document.frames.length?-1:document.selection.createRange().text);if(q<=0){void(q=prompt('Enter text to search E2.'+(q?'':'Gimme some text to search E2'),''))};if(q)location.href='http://everything2.com/?node='+escape(q)

You'll need to create a favorite and replace the location with the code above for it to work.

Please use this:
javascript:q=(document.frames.length?-1:document.selection.createRange().text);if(q<=0){void(q=prompt('Enter text to search E2.'+(q?'':'Gimme some text to search E2'),''))};if(q)location.href='http://everything2.com/?lastnode_id=94806&node='+escape(q)

It links whatever you search to The Node Linked to All Others! Join the cause!

And how about in the context menu?

Add to the registry something like this: the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MenuExt\Everything Search Its default should be "c:\windows\e2search.htm" or something. Also, put there a binary value, with data 0x10.

Now, put a file at wherever you pointed that thing, with this in:

<script LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
var EverythingURL = "http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?";

 var Win = external.menuArguments;
 var activePage = sourceWin.document;
 var locus = sourceWin.location;
 var activeSelection = activePage.selection;
 var rngActive = activeSelection.createRange();
 var selectedText = new String(rngActive.text);
  EverythingURL = EverythingURL + "node="  + selectedText;
  if (Win.location.hostname=="www.everything2.com") {
   var foo=activePage.links(0).search.match(/&lastnode_id=\d*/);
   EverythingURL=EverythingURL+foo;
  } 
  Win.location=EverythingURL;
</script>

It even soft links.
Should do the trick.

This file should be hosted somewhere, then you'd just need to write the URL in the registry and you'd be all set.
