Update 3rd Dec 07: James over at SkreemR has officially added my Firefox plugin to their 3rd party plugins “Tools” page view the page here
I coded this firefox add-on to query the SkreemR mp3 search site much quicker than the standard search tool add-on.
SkreemR currently provide a useful search add-on, it installs SkreemR search to your current list of search engines within Firefox. By searching for an artist or song you are directed to the SkreemR website and results are displayed.
I re-coded their XML install file to include a live suggest feature pulling related words as you type from Yahoo to speed up your search query.
1. The below image shows the default SkreemR add-on, you have to type in the artist and song title and then click on the magnify button to complete a search:
2. And here is my improved version in action, as you type you will be prompted with relevant words speeding up your search, no need to click on magnify button. Just type, select, go.
Try It Out:
If you haven’t installed the SkreemR search add-on for Firefox please try my version:
How to uninstall:
To uninstall the add-on just select “Manage Search Engines” from your drop down list then select and remove it.
Hope it improves your search speed on SkreemR
Note: This add-on will install to “Microsoft Internet Explorer” browser but the auto suggest feature is disabled.
