Using widgets for custom searches

You can extend the Lotus Notes search bar with a little coding but you can also create a pretty easy search engine based on Text Selection using Widgets.  I often get emails referencing my blog or something on Planet Lotus so these two widgets come in handy for me.  I created two widgets, one to search my blog and another to search Planet Lotus from a text selection.
