User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.23; Mac_PowerPC)
Build Identifier: 

Firefox currently has default search plugins for: 
 - Google (web search), 
 - Amazon (book/product search), 
 - Yahoo (web/directory search), 
 - Dictionary (word/definition search), 
 - Ebay (product/auction search)

As blogs are becoming more and more important and relevant to more people, I think it 
makes a lot of sense to include a good blog search plugin in the default set.   Technorati 
currently has the freshest (most recent) and most comprehensive index of blogs, thus a 
Technorati search plugin is a logical choice for this.  I will enclose the necessary 
technorati.src and technorati.gif files.

The default encoding for .src files is x-mac-roman. Looks perfectly allright.
I think it's better to use alpha-transparent PNG so you don't have that
annoying white background in the menu.
