Search Engine Wizard

If you have been using Firefox for any amount of time, you have probably fell in love with the search box in the top right corner of the browser. The only problem is that not every Web site is listed on Firefox’s search plugin Web site. Are you looking to add a search engine that nobody has written a plugin for? Try the Search Engine Wizard.

Here is what the developer of the Search Engine Wizard has to say about it.

Mycroft seems to jam up with requests. What can you do?

This is an extension automatically create search engines for you. Open the search webpage, right-click on the input field of keywords, and click “Add Search-plugin”. All you have to do is click and click.

Want to delete one of the search engine plugins you have made? You can hunt through your folders and find where they are stored, or just install SearchPluginHacks. Want some more information about this extension? Read through this thread over at mozillaZine.

Once perfected a little more, I would really like to see something like Search Engine Wizard built into Firefox by default.

This Firefox extension is for versions 1.5 and up of the browser. If you want to download it and try it out for yourself, you can do so at the Mozilla Update Web site.
