An idea occured to me that I thought Firebird developers may be interested in implementing. The search bar in Firebird is great and all (or so they tell me, I don't use it myself), and it's easy enough to click on a plugin to have your favorite search engine added. If, that is, there's a plugin available. And you can locate it. And it does the specific search you want. (Amazon DVDs, not the whole site!... etc) It seems to me it would be relatively simple to let a user "capture" any form field they want, for use in the search bar. Any search, no matter how small it's userbase, would be a click or two away from Mozilla's search UI. No writing a plugin or custom keyword for your companies intranet simply for your own personal use. Two UI implementations immediately come to mind. 1) Context menu of the search field. 2) Search bar's menu (more discoverable), which would then prompt you to click the field you wish to capture. I have various other ideas for how it could be implemented, but you guys probably have enough to go off of to determine if this is something of value. Cheers.
Omniweb 5 actually has this feature.
How dare they steal my brilliant innovation. Hrmph.
