CLHS Search Mozilla Plugin

clhs search plugin for mozilla

Xach Beane has a very simple lisp hyperspec search plugin for Mozilla. The plugin, originally by Andreas Fuchs, lets you search by symbol (probe-file), by section (9.1.2), and even by format directive (~A).

Once you've copied the plugin files to the correct location (instructions are on Xach's page), you can select “CL HyperSpec” as the default search engine in Mozilla's “Internet Search” preferences.

This would be handier if Mozilla had an easier interface to using multiple search engines. As it is, Google is too useful to relegate to secondary status.

For what it's worth, I use what Bill describes above. I don't use the search plugin, personally.

Check out Firefox, the new browser from the Mozilla team. It has a search sidebar which you can click on and choose from many websites. I have google, imdb, amazon, ebay, etc, set up and it saves a surprising amount of time.
