Yes. You will want to look at the format of the search query strings for those sites. For instance, on www.msn.com, the URL to use would be:

"http://www.bing.com/search?q=song+naran"

For Yahoo, use:

"http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=song+naran"

Hotmail would also use the Bing search engine, so you wouldn't need to open another tab for that to begin with. All you have to do is URL encode the search terms (). The full code snippet would look something like this:






string searchString = "song naran"; //or some value retrieved from a form

System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(
    @"E:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe", 
    String.Format(
        "http://www.bing.com/search?q={0} http://search.yahoo.com/search?p={0}", 
        HttpUtiltity.UrlEncode(searchString)));

FYI, to use the HttpUtility class, you will need to add a reference to the System.Web namespace in your project.

Well, the exception is pretty self explanatory. You can't issue a "using" directive on a class. Remove "using System.String;" from your code.
