Ditch Your Unused Search Engines

imageI usually don’t have a lot of clutter in my browser, but my search engine collection had gotten a little crazy, till I cleaned it out yesterday.  Right now, I have it down to five – because I really didn’t need the 15 I had, because I hadn’t used ten or eleven of them in months or years.

How can you remove your unused search engines?  Click on the Firefox search box, and then go down and select the Manage Search Engines… option. Now, on the Manage Search Engine List you can move up, move down or remove search engines you don’t use anymore.  

Just because you CAN add 200 or more search engines doesn’t mean you should.  This is just one more quick way you can lighten the load on your favorite browser.
