The Subhash Browser App for Android was formerly known as Search Heaven for Android. The Search Heaven app for was an Android App version of the Search Engine Heaven search page at http://www.vsubhash.com/search/). This page shows search results inside a IFRAME. Long before that, the Search Engine Heaven was originally created as a search pane page for Internet Explorer. After I moved to Firefox and then to Opera, I could not find time to maintain it and removed the IE version from the website. (IE sucked like hell. It still does quite a bit.)
In the intervening years before this, Microsoft has bit by bit removed support for the search pane. I think I added some notoriety to the search pane by publishing details of an exploit that bypassed popup blockers. The F3 or Ctrl+E shortcut no longer works. This means that the old registry-hack installation has become obsolete. In IE11, the search pane has been removed completely.
- In IE versions 6, 7, and 8, you need to set the popup blocker to allow popups from http://www.vsubhash.com.
- In IE version 9 and 10, you need check the option “Enable website to use the search pane”.
