The Mac's built-in search tool, Sherlock, can help you search various content providers on the Web at the same time. In fact, Sherlock might be the only search tool you ever need. Sherlock is very powerful and it enables you to find information on the Web quickly and easily.
In Mac OS X versions 10.1.5 and earlier, Sherlock was used to perform local file searches as well. For 10.2, the find function was returned to the Finder and Sherlock is used exclusively to search the Web.
Sherlock's window provides a set of tools you can use to perform your Web content searches (see Figure 13.4).
