In another thread there is a discussion about one day Faithlife providing support for searching multiple sites at once (e.g., Logos and Vyrso). 

Until that happens, I developed a workaround for the Mac (Someone could do the same for Windows, I am sure). It's an AppleScript that pops up a search term box, and then opens and searches several Faithlife websites in Safari.

All I do is type "SFW" in Spotlight to activate it.

For those interested, here is the script (not all original to me). You would need to copy it to a new AppleScript, then save it as an application:

Thanks! Smile

I have never used AppleScript before. You mentioned something about "saving it as an application." Does the first link do that already? I would never remember to type SFW into "spotlight" (which I rarely use!).

Yes, the first link is the prebuilt application. The second is for those who want to modify it.

You can, of course, run it anyway you want...from the Dock, from the Launchpad, etc. You might want to change the generic icon to something more flashy if you run it from the Dock Smile
