Google has rolled out a new encrypted search today that allows SSL encryption of search terms.

One can access the secure search page by going to https://www.google.com/

To use this new encrypted search from Launch Bar you need to go your LB index and change to relevant search string to this:

Code: Select all

https://www.google.com/search?q=*


I tried it and it works perfectly.

This doesnt work properly for me. I tried it and it just goes to a

https://encrypted.google.com/webhp

Where you have to type in the search again.
How do i fix this, anyone know the correct search string? Thanks.

I tried https://www.google.co.uk and https://www.google.com and both seem to work now so i was wrong - strange.
