6x9 Web Search

About

The code was originally created for a design of my personal website, richardwinskill.co.uk, that never progressed very far. When I decided to abandon that design and start again, I also decided to create a standalone search form.

The form allowed you to search many different websites (such as Google, Wikipedia, and IMDb) from one location.

It could be used either as a standalone page, or embedded in other pages.

The size of the form was set such that it should fill the available space in Safari on an iPhone.

I kept adding more searches as I thought of them, and since the search form that's embedded was still the live form, any new searches would automatically appear in embedded forms.

Example

The form looked like this:

6 times 9 Web Search form

Using

The project had remained largely unchanged since 2008, with minor tweaks to accomodate changes in URLs up to 2011. Due to the prevalence and effectiveness of built-in browser search features I officially discontinued the project when I moved 6 times 9 to Google Sites at the start of 2013.
