Inspiration: out of the box

I like it how they made their code boxes just a little bit bigger (on the left and right side) to give the website a depth feeling. Simple and nice.

Adding a cool search box to your website

I recently discovered that PwrShell.net added a search box to their website:

I need to say that I’m pretty surprised by the results and they way they show you the search box.

Google just redirects you to a new page but by surprise I got a nice web 2.0 result popup. Cool! 😀 Pretty clean from the guys at Bing.com.

Here is the result:

After some research I found out that you can implement this search box on your own website. Just go to www.bing.com/siteowner (Settings in upper right corner to United States, otherwise you will see that the page doesn’t exist!!). Follow the instructions there and have fun!

By clicking the “Try your search box” you can preview the bing search box how it would look on your site.
