This option requires, that you have an own web server in your computer, i.e. a third party software running PHP code, like XAMPP or MAMP. The server setup may require a bit computer skills. Of the available php versions at least 5.6-7.2 seem to work fine.

Once you have your web server up and running in your computer, just extract the content of the file below (.exe, .zip or .gz) to your document root -folder (like htdocs/) or in a subfolder. Open web browser and navigate to http://localhost/ubsearch.php (or http://localhost/subfolder/ubsearch.php , the subfolder -name you can decide). The Urantia Book search engine opens, and the use is rather self intuitive.
