Firefox Advanced Search


Way back when I switched from the Mozilla suite to Firefox, one of the things I missed was the advanced search sidebar. It seemed that the extension to restore that function had been killed by some pruning of code, which it had. However, after what must have been quite a bit of hard work, the advanced search extension is back. There are still a couple of issues and the interface is currently somewhat ugly, but it does work. Yeh!

On a related extensions note, Journal looks like it could be an interesting addition to sit with Thunderbird, or Sunbird (which can’t handle extensions yet) or even lightning. Also, if I did a lot of online research I might consider Research Buddy useful. And for collaborative browsing Jybe looks pretty interesting, though I haven’t found a need to try it out yet (it’s not an original idea, the now defunct derTandemBrowser comes to mind but I don’t know if that ever worked).
