Search tool for firefox

Postby Rock_Rat on Tue Sep 11, 2007 7:43 am

I've started using a tool called OpenSearchFox for Mozilla Firefox. OpenSearchFox lets you define custom search engines for the search box in the upper right hand corner of the browser. For instance I have one set up to search using the gc.com find cache by keyword search box and another for trackables by TB number. I can search either with out loading the gc.com page. It's a lot faster. All you do to add a search is load the page with the search you want right click in the text box for the search and choose "Add OpenSearch plugin".

Here is the page for the add on:
