I have just discovered the delight that is pluggable search implementations in Firefox. Click on the Google icon to the left of your firefox search box, then click @Add engines…@. You are presented with a (rather ugly) page presenting a multitude of search plugins for everything from “amazon”:http://www.amazon.com, “imdb”:http://www.imbd.com, “SamSpade”:http://www.samspade.org and most importantly “AllMusic”:http://www.allmusic.com. Best of all you don’t even have to restart your browser to pick up your newly installed plugins.
