The Drupal Search -- Cross-browser custom-search-box

11 Sep 2011

This small search addon will make your day-to-day surfing on drupal.org easy. Simply click on the installation link below and if your browser is awesome, it will add the search box.

Once installed, you can quickly jump to modules' project pages, jump to drupal.org forums, jump to api.drupal.org pages faster, etc etc. It can even give famous people's profile pages, such as Dries, WebChick and many other awesome people there.

I love open source. but there's nothing interesting to open here. I just created an opensearch XML file to query Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" thing so as Google have indexed drupal.org well, it can "understand" what you need. This search box adds drupal flavor automatically so searching for "Views" gives Views module's project page instead of Google search results(to test it, just type "Views" in Google.com and hit "I'm feeling lucky").

Hope you Drupalists find my stuff useful!
Installation link is below. I also created a video to show some funny things that you can do with it.
