IE5's Enhanced AutoSearch
A fantastic search feature, and one that might not be readily obvious, is IE5's new AutoSearch. It has the ability to find sites based solely on keywords or phrases typed directly into the Address bar. For example, you can simply type Michelin, or McDonald's or even Empire State Building directly into the Address Bar, IE5 will then open up a two-paned view showing the Search Results on the left, plus it will automatically open up the site which represents the most likely match in the right. Cool stuff!
The Search options are available from the menu at Tools, Internet Options, then click the Advanced tab and scroll down to Search from the Address Bar.
