I'm trying to search Google via POST rather than GET, but so far am getting the error:

The request method POST is inappropriate for the URL/search

But which URL is it?

This isn't for a website, I'm searching from my browser. scroogle uses post. Instead of using scroogle, I'd like to post to google myself.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Is there any specific reason you have to use POST? –  grawity Jul 1 '11 at 14:04

There isn't any. Traditionally, queries are done using GET requests, while POST is for submitting data (actions, database updates, file uploads and such).
