4. The Web > 44. Build Your Own Firefox Search Engine

Build Your Own Firefox Search Engine

Firefox’s built-in search box lets you search Google from wherever you are. You don’t have to settle for that built-in searching, though, because you can build your own Firefox search engine plug-in to search through any site from the Google search box.

Take a look at the upper-right corner of your Firefox browser [Hack #43] . You’ll see a nifty search box called the Search Bar that lets you search Google by typing in a search term. Better yet, you don’t have to settle for searching just Google that way. You can search through other sites as well by installing a specific search engine add-in for that site to the Search Bar. So, instead of using Google to search the Internet, for example, you can use Ask Jeeves (http://www.ask.com) or A9 (http://www.a9.com).
