Search to Tab

Going into the “should have been in there by default” pile of extensions I have grown to enjoy since Firefox 2 came out, we have searchOnTab. This simple and small extension allows you to select that new searches always appear in a new tab via the browser.

It is a pain in the neck to have to open a new tab before I start a new search (if I do not want to have my current tab changed or surfed away from). I just have to believe though that there must be an easier way to do this. Has anybody else been able to find an about:config hack to get it done?

If not – then at least we have this extension to get the job done.

One of my favorite features inside of Firefox is the find toolbar. Just by hitting Ctrl and F at the same time unlocks an ability to find anything one a Web page no matter where it might try to hide. Sure, other browsers have done the find bar before, but none are as good in my opinion.

The nice thing about this quick find option is that after you are done with it and click somewhere else on the Web page you are searching – it just goes away.
