    This is the beta of a plugin for Dogpile.com that goes in the upper right hand corner. Dogpile is a search engine that combines Google, Yahoo!, Ask Jeeves, etc. searches all combined on one page. Here is the code needed for the Dogpile.src file...

    Copy and paste the code into a notepad file and save.
    Change the extension from .txt to .src .
    An icon (Dogpile.gif) [16x16] can be found here.
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v177/WhiteMateria/Dogpile.gif
    Place both the .src file and the icon in this folder ->
    C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins
    Code:
    # Dogpile plugin for Mozilla + Firefox
    # WhiteMateria
    # January 15, 2005
    
    <SEARCH 
       name="Dogpile"
       description="Dogpile Search"
       method="GET"
       action="http://www.dogpile.com/info.dogpl/search/redir.htm"
    >
    
    <input name="advanced=1&top=1&nde=1&qcat=web&q_all" user>
    
    <interpret 
        browserResultType="result" 
        charset = "UTF-8"
        resultListStart="<!--a-->" 
        resultListEnd="<!--z-->" 
        resultItemStart="<!--m-->" 
        resultItemEnd="<!--n-->"
    >
    </search>
    This is a beta and my first attempt at any kind of Mozilla plugin. So all I know is that it comes back with results which is more than I can say for previous attempts 10 minutes ago. Let me know what you think and any impovements for it.

    I got tired of the Google one... As powerful as Google may be I did not want to keep left clicking to check other search engines. And I know that Dogpile.com already fetches from so many of them... Finally I can get Google.com off as my home page and go about just using the top right hand bar for one ultimate search.

    I've had a lot of luck with Dogpile in the past, when Google turned up little, or nothing. ;) :D
