One of the nice things about Mint is that it is *not* made in the USofA.
However, it does cater for the masses of uses that do live in the USofA.
Which can be a Pain, sometimes - actually lot's of times.
another thing that is a Pain - is Search engines.
It's a Real Pain, when I search for something,
and it gives results slanted to the masses of uses that live in the USofA.
That's totally Useless.
So, after some searching, I found This site.
http://mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engine ... search=yes
Just click on a Name to Install that Plugin.
it does seem to make a "search" - that little bit easier
other than changing the "start page" to some thing more local (au.yahoo.com)
( which I have seen, done on a Lot of people's PCs. )
it is tricky, to get a 'relevant search result' - that you are actually looking for.
This is just One solution, to this problem, of getting the 'right results'.
