      • open

        boolean open​(String id)
        Opens the search result using the engine-specific identifier. When performing the search operation, search engine is responsible for tagging the results with unique identifiers that fully reference the results and are not transient. These identifiers can be later used to open the results by delegating the operation to the engine, or to bookmark the results for future opening.
        Parameters:
        id - The engine-specific identifier provided by the search result
        Returns:
        true if the operation was successful, or false if the help system should try to open the hit using the provided href.
