Search URL used for integration with Chrome and other apps not working - New URL?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

First, I like the new look very much :)

 

The problem:

I'm doing all of my Evernote searches straight from my Chrome address bar as well as from a few desktop applications (which fires up chrome and does the search via address bar).

But all that broke with the new version, all I need is the new search url. Couldn't figure it out from the source code.

This breaks my workflows a lot...

 

The old adress used to be http://www.evernote.com/search?q=%s

 

For those interested there's an old blogpost showing this: http://blog.evernote.com/blog/2010/02/17/searching-through-evernote-with-google-chrome/

 

Thanks,

David

Yeah, it's nice looking, but the usability is killing me.   I am literally dying as I type this.

 

Old workflow:

type e-v-e- until the autofill kicks in, hit tab, enter search terms, hit enter

 

New workflow:

go to evernote.com

Wait for the page to load

click on Sign In

Wait for the page to load

Click Sign In (and why can't I be signed in for longer than a week, btw?)

Click Search

enter search terms

 

Alternatively, you can wait 30-60 seconds for the Evernote Windows 8 app to load, hit search, select Evernote, enter search terms

 

Am I the only one having these problems with using the service?

Yep, I'm with both of you... the great new look appears to have come at the expense of functionality.

There must be a quicker way of searching Evernote via the Chrome/Firefox address bar, surely??

+1 is this something that will be addressed at all or is it an abandoned feature. Would be nice to know whether i should wait for it to work again or to start thinking about changing workflows. Thanks!

Chrome -> Edit search engine -> use this as the search string:
