||The search feature has multiple entry points in
mozilla including the URL bar autocomlpetion dropdown, the URL bar search
button, the context menu when text is selected, the search sidebar tab,
and the search menu items. The feature exposes "basic" searching
for newcomers to the web as well as "advanced" searching for more experienced
web surfers. Search is already quite configurable: basic/advanced
mode selection, default search engine selection, and more. The backend
is based on the Sherlock format as specified by Apple. We have extended
the format to support some mozilla-specific features inclduing constraining
the basic list.
This page shall serve as the launching pad for search development in mozilla. Following are links to relevant working documents and proposals.
