According to you link in Slimboat. I think it is not a Search Page. Its an official page for Slimboat application.So you can't set it as a search engine.


Please report back to say if this helped you!

First off, thank you very much for your prompt reply.

Next, Slimboat offers Create Your Own Search Engine functionality and, in effect, works in conjunction with Fluid (http://fluidapp.com/) which offers a great way to turn websites into applications. From the Fluid homepage: “Fluid is free. You can download Fluid for free and create as many Fluid Apps as you like.”
