Edit uTorrent Search Engines

If you use uTorrent, you probably suffered from a major UI updated a few weeks ago, but non-related to that, I finally noticed the search engine bar on the top left corner, that has as it’s default search engine, Infospace.

Search Bar

Now, I don’t know the use of a search bar within the torrent client (when you search something, it goes to your browser, so it’s useless), BUT, nonetheless, here’s how to add some new engines.

Go to Options > Preferences > UI Settings

Search engine

There is a box on the right side where you’re going to add the search engines. It’s just like adding a search engine to anything, but with it’s own format:

NameOfTheEngine|SearchEngine

The “|” is necessary.

The Pirate Bay|http://thepiratebay.se/search/
Google|https://www.google.com/search?q=
YouTube|http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=

You should see this:

A tip, that link to The Pirate Bay will automatically sort torrents by seeders.
