advanced search sidebar for firefox

If you were a big fan of the advanced searching options in the old Mozilla search sidebar, there's a great new project over at mozdev called Searchsidebar that will probably make your day. It's still in the early development stages but I'm sure they could use some help testing.

Thanks asa for posting this. TomerCohen: you're right, not new but there have been lots of improvements lately, so it's really worth mentioning.

Tomer Cohen - The Searchsidebar for Firefox has been around for awhile but it has just had some major improvements in the last month or so. Including integration with Firefox searchbar and location bar searching.

Cybermagellan - Spyware? The base code for the Searchsidebar is straight from the Mozilla Suite but its been re-coded to work with Firefox.

And this project does need testers so the more the better...

Does this work in Deer Park Alpha 2? Would be nice on the homepage for the extension to mention what versions its compatable with...

Yeah I know...I'm just being sarcastic...Asa and myself and a few others on IRC have had this conversation

Littlemutt - Yes it is compatible with Deer Park Alpha 2 although there are some problems with the Next/Previous buttons. I have updated the homepage to say which versions this is compatible with.
