returning from the search service the one or more contextual search results responsive to the searching operation, each contextual search result including a reference to content associated with the search result and an application identifier identifying the application.

2. The method of claim 1 further comprising:

ranking the contextualized search results associated with the application with other search results from at least one other search of other content based on the search query, prior to the returning operation.

3. The method of claim 1 wherein at least one of the one or more contextualized search results further includes an action identifier designating an action to be performed by the application on the content referenced by the search result.

4. The method of claim 1 wherein the searching operation searches for application content, and further comprising:

searching by the search service at least one index associated with Web content; and ranking the contextualized search results associated with the application among the one or more search results referencing the searched Web content to provide integrated search results of different search contexts, the integrated search results being returned by the search service in the returning operation.

5. The method of claim 1 wherein contextualized search results include ranking data to allow subsequently integrated ranking by a client system of the contextualized search results associated with the application among search results from a local search context to provide integrated search results of different search contexts.

6. One or more tangible computer-readable storage media encoding computer-executable instructions for executing on a computer system a computer process, the computer process comprising:

searching by a search service at least one index associated with content accessible through an application based on at least one portion of the search query to provide one or more contextualized search results associated with the content of the application; and returning from the search service the one or more contextual search results responsive to the searching operation, each contextual search result including a reference to content associated with the search result and an application identifier identifying the application.

7. A system comprising:

10. The system of claim 7 wherein the search service searches for application content, and the search service further searches at least one index associated with Web content and ranks the contextualized search results associated with the application among the one or more search results referencing the searched Web content to provide integrated search results of different search contexts, the integrated search results being returned by the search results interface.
