I’m restricted to Internet Explorer on the job, but I love being able to customize Firefox at home.
Dennis O’Reilly at the Worker’s Edge passes on some hints for optimizing Google searching with his post Three Firefox add-ons enhance Google. The add-ons:
- GoogleEnhancer, which pulls some of the Advanced Search options into drop-down boxes next to the Google Search box and offers ways to customize the Google results screen
- Googlepedia, to run your Google search in Wikipedia and display the results on the right side of your Google results screen
- Search Cloudlet, providing tag clouds for Google results
