Arrow Calguns Search for Firefox and IE7

A few of you may know that there was a custom google search engine created by Oaklander. Well I took it one step further and made it into a search plugin for Firefox and a registry file that will add it to your search providers for IE7.

Firefox

How to Install
  • Go here
  • When you get to the plugin list search result page, just click on the "I" ,see the screenshot below,to install it in Firefox. Enjoy!




Internet Explorer 7


Use the attached registry file to install Calguns Search as a Search Provider in IE7.

How to Install
  • Download CalgunsSearch.zip,
  • Unzip the file
  • Close all instances of IE7,
  • Double click on CalgunsSearch.reg and you will see a warning asking you if you want to add it to the registry, click Yes.
  • Now open IE7 and in the drop-down list of Search Providers you should see "Calguns Search"

Very cool.

I didn't see you said press "I" to install so I clicked all three letters and apparently I reported your plug-in :| sorry.

Don't press R

If you're using IE7 it will add the custom google search engine for calguns to the list of search providers in the upper right of your browser. see the pic below.

If anyone is interested you can use any of the google hacks with these two plugins. A very simple example to help narrow search results would be

<screen name>,<search term> (note the comma between the 2)

i.e.

obeygiant,flowchart

If you come up with other search strings that work well, please share them here.

Is there any other location to download the Firefox plugin? The Searchplugins.net site gives a "No plugins matched your search" message.

Weird, they must have deleted my account. I setup a new one which can be found here:

Calguns Search


Thank you for letting me know about it.

Updated the first so that the link to install the search plugin is correct.

There are 2 Firefox plugins listed. One has a CGN icon, the other has a Google type icon. I installed the one w/CGN icon. What's the difference between the 2 ?
