PortableApps search plugin!

Hi
I played around with the searchplugin code in Firefox.
And I create a small PortableApps search plugin for Firefox!

Download the file:
http://www.alice-dsl.net/m_t/portableappsdotcom.xml

copy the .xml file here:

\Firefox\searchplugins

Have fun!
Maybe someone would like to update this to the official PA version?

Can anyone with more advanced

Can anyone with more advanced skills please confirm if this works correctly. Not doubting your work M T but I myself have No skill so would like this looked at a bit before I try it out.

Must say though is a great idea as it could raise a bit for PA if FF's search box could be directed to the portableapps.com start/search page.

Thanks for the great idea.

I think that idea was mentioned when John opened start.portableapps.com and he said he wouldn't get any money from searches unless the were actually done from the page itself.

XML Search Filehttps://portableapps.com/search/node/{searchTerms}

It looks like this is searching PortableApps.com not Start.PortableApps.com

I don't have a short attention span. I just...oh look a kitty!

I think it could be useful to see it integrated into the Forums pages, this way it can be easily installed, a bit like Wikipedia or Digg.
