PostSubject: Music album finder plugin for Firefox   Fri Apr 16, 2010 5:20 pm

I wrote a custom search engine for Firefox that allows you to easily find music albums using the built in Firefox Search Bar:

Browse to %programfiles%\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins

Make a new text file, and rename it to albumfinder.src

Open albumfinder.src with your favorite text editor, and paste in the following:

Code:
<search
name="Find an album"
method="GET"
action="http://www.google.com/search"
queryCharset="utf-8"
>

<input name="q" user>
<input name="sitesearch" value="mediafire.com">
</search>

Optional

To add the icon that shows up on the left side of the search bar, save this image as albumfinder.gif, in the same directory:



Save it and restart Firefox.

To use it, click the Drop-down on the left side of the search bar and select Find an album. Type in the band, song, or album you are looking for and hit Enter.




It's pretty simple, but it works quite well.

I haven't tried this yet, but isn't this basically just putting another skin on Google or any other search engine and labeling it as an album finder? Wouldn't you get the same exact results from using your plug in and Google?

No. The results are 99% relevant direct download links. If you type a band and album name into Google, you are going to get 99% links to information, but not where to actually download it.
