Google is the best search engine but it's not very effective at file searching. How can i search for certain kind of files (ex:flash). I really enjoy XiaoXiao Flash series but it's hard to find them. Help me please.

The website will open and download xiaoxiao.swf in temp files. Then with the help of flash player from macromedia you can create your own exe file.

You should understand the principle of indexing and searching first. Flash is a file with little index content, so normally engine like google have no way to search for a flash file. If you give the file name (for example xiaoxiao1.swf) it may find the result in HTML code of a web page or in folder index. Other than that, search engine is a stupid machine. AllTheWeb has recently developed a way to index flash file (due to the release of flash SDK), but they hasn't have that feature intergrated.

In short, I'd say you should find alternative ways to search for flash file. First, go to some popular website specialized in flash development (flashkit, devianart, swishmax forum etc) or some public forums where people put cool stuffs there (metacafe, break) then follow the link. Second, try to change the search query. Instead of looking for a flash file which is fun and graphically interesting (the search engine doesn't know it), put it into a context and search for the filename instead (etc search for "xiaoxiao swf" then analyse the result to find what you want).
