Oracle Metalink Firefox search plugin

Similar to my other two Firefox search plugins (found here and here), I have now created a plugin to search Metalink (as promised). You can download it from here.

Note that you need to login to Metalink in order to get results. Once logged in – and as long as you do not exit your Firefox browser – you do not need to keep the Metalink site open and you do not need to log in again every time you search. Enjoy!

    Now that Firefox 1.5 is out and they have a new domain (http://www.mozilla.com/), do you know if these plugins are compatible with 1.5?

    I’m going to test them soon, but our baby is coming, and I’m running out of time.

    Tom, the plugins are compatible with Firefox 1.5. If they do not show up on your list of search engines after you upgrade to FF 1.5, you may need to re-install them. Congratulations on your baby!

    Carl, I’m working on it (just not full time). Expect a new version of the Oracle News extension that is compatible with Firefox 1.5 sometime in the near future. I cannot promise a date, it depends on my work load.

    people say it’s more stupid not to ask so here i go,

    I assume the metalink search plugin requires of my metalink account doesn’t it?

    Duo, your assumption is correct. You need to have a Metalink account.
