Firefox 3 - Getting stuff organized - Search Engines

There are a ton of ready-made search engine tools you can add to Firefox that you access in the search box at the upper right of your Firefox window. (Check out the ones Iyov uses.) If you added on OpenSearchFox I mentioned in the previous post, you can actually create your own quickly and easily. (Just a right-click, and a couple other clicks needed.) The graphic above shows what my drop-down list of search engines looks like. Using the "Manage Search Engines" button at the bottom of the list, I have organized them into related groupings.
One that I have since added to this list was just mentioned in the comments on an earlier post by J. P. van de Giessen. He used a customized Google search to create one that will search across all Biblioblogs listed on the Biblioblogs site. You have to add this search plugin a bit differently, but follow the directions and download it from van de Giessen's web site.
It works great! Thanks, J.P.
