Monocle is a simple search tool that puts a universal search field at your disposal. When you want search, you can choose from a number of engines to perform the search in different places. Monocle comes preloaded with engines for Google, Wikipedia, Windows Live Search and Yahoo! Search. You can easily add your own engines by performing an example search inside a web browser window in Monocle.
Monocle offers a menu bar status item and a configurable hot key for instant access to the search field, and also offers "callwords" to let you switch to any of your other more...engines easily. And like many other applications, you can set it to automatically check for updates, so you won't miss out when new versions appear.
* Changed search bar to be slimmer. The icon blob now forms the left cap.
* Added a bunch of new system color-like apparences to the search bar.
* Engines carry information about the character encoding needed. Multibyte scripts like Japanese, Korean, Chinese and Vietnamese should work better.
o The encoding is picked up when you automatically add ("discover") a new engine. This is complex stuff so there are probably edge cases in which this isn't picked up correctly. Bug reports are welcome along with the URL to the engine.
o The encoding is available for editing when you manually add a more...new engine or edit an existing engine. All IANA charset names supported by Mac OS X are supported but some common ones are listed for convenience.
Operating System Support: Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
