Someone should make a picture similar to [1] which shows how the aggregation works. It's so new that it's hard to understand what is meant by opensearch. 14:33, 29 October 2006 (UTC)

Wales search[edit]

Anyone know what became of this? Clip from 3 years ago. Sounds like a different open search to me. --Bxj (talk) 15:08, 13 December 2010 (UTC)

That's Wikia Search, a free and open search engine. Both are "open", but are very different things otherwise. Reach Out to the Truth 22:53, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
