PBase image search plugin for Firefox

Mozilla has accepted a plugin I wrote to search PBase photo sharing
You can download it
here.

Please let me know if it works well for you and please judge it.
Thanks!

It will add the PBase image search functionality to your search box, directing your browser to the first page of results. (I find PBase a treasure trove of high quality source pics )

from Mozilla/mozdev.org -
Mycroft project provides a rich collection of Search Plugins for Mozilla-based browsers (e.g. Netscape 7, Mozilla, Mozilla Firefox, and Beonex). (link for plug in page. Most photo sites are listed in the arts section, but don't bother with the the Getty plugin, there's a mistake in the coding and it acts like a bookmark to the search page instead of delivering results)

This is what it looks like in Firefox under Mac OS X, from screenshots I've seen should be similar in Mozilla under Windows



Also, if you're a search engine junkie, you can organise how they're listed in the drop down menu by adding numbers to the plugins and corresponding images.



folder can be found here -
Mac
control click Firefox (or Mozilla) app, show package contents, contents, Mac OS, searchplugins
Windows
C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox (or Mozilla)\searchplugins



and thanks MaestroCalhoun!

How many stars do I give it? I am looking up at the sky right now (thanks to wireless) and it's a clear night. I lost count at about 13289! I'm just getting the hang of Firefox/Thunderbird. You're one talented bean to make this nice utility!

thanks guys! I really can't take credit for more than being curious and opening some .src files for ones I had already installed then adapting the code for PBase (plus a quick google for a tutorial confirmed my changes), anyone can do it.

Nice job Sosumi! I like it and it works great so far! If I was a juror, you'd definitely get a gold star.

I wrote another one today that's useful for fellow Mac lovers -
Download.com Mac only search

I wiped my drive this past week and didn't have backups of a lot of little haxies, widgets and such that I've come to rely on so this plugin came in very handy.

Azure, you flatter me! It's just that I've always liked to take things apart to see how they work, my parents used to have to hide the screwdrivers lest they come home to find the toaster in pieces
Code is not much different, look at existing ones and monkey around with them until they suit your purpose.

I'm not from the UK, possibly watching too much Monty Python and BBC progamming in my youth had an infulence Also I worked in Cambridge for a bit and at other times I'd often spend weekends in London, flights were really cheap back then. Oh, and a good friend is an ex-pat scouser, suppose there's some influence there too, hmm, seems I hang around with a lot of people from the UK and Ireland
