Quicksilver very slow for Web search (Custom) #637
From the time I added custom web search, Quicksilver is slow. Normal funtctions are fine. But custom search takes a long time appear.
For example i have added a custom search for online bookstore flipkart.com and it has to come with the letters flip.
I have to wait a long time after typing flip for the Web search icon to appear.
The same slowness is seen for two other custom searches.
The response from typing ( the invoking letters) to the Web search icon appearance takes a lot of time-- the rest is snappy. It opens the browser with the search quickly and properly.
I have made corresponding web search the default action also (priority one).. Why is there such a delay?
The builtin google search icon appears fast. No such problem there.
I like the feature and dont want to disbale the catalog for custom search. Its really useful.

I'm sure it's possible, even though I haven't looked at it yet.
I'm not that familiar with the internals of the websearch stuff, so I have a question: Are the icons loaded every time I call up on of the searches? That seems quite wasteful. Shouldn't that just happen once (when the websearch is added to the catalog) and then be stored somehow? Then any delays would already be tucked away in the catalog-rescan task. That seems more like the right thing to do.
I noticed this, too. It also introduces a delay when a web search comes up as you’re typing (but is not the eventual match you were going for).
I was going to look into it, but hadn’t figured out how to reproduce it consistently. I never noticed this with B61, but the plug-in hasn’t changed and it seems like that has to be the cause.
Thank you Patrick for the clarification.
Really happy with QS... I came back to it in its new Lion avatar and the
Will be looking forward to this improvement...

I was testing to be sure. And here is my experience:
To compare with Google search-- that icon always loads up snappily. Even when the custom icons loading hangs. Always snappy.
How can one ensure custom searches also behave uinformly well... I'm afraid still something not quite there..Or is it just me?
