one of the things that I'd love to have is the ability for the search page to be accessible by the built-in search box of firefox. This is a little technical but I'm sure Mibus and Leonard will understand.
Make the search page also accessible with the GET method instead of the POST method only. FYI: When using the POST method the data that is sent to the CGTalk server is sent invisible to the user, like what is happening with standard HTML forums with submit buttons, while with the GET method the data is transmitted inside the url, e.g. index.php?searchtem=searchthis&etc=etc))
this should be pretty easy, it's probably just enabling of the $_GET variables that are used by the search function. When that is done, I'd gladly write the plugin needed and share it.a quick look in the html code tells me only "$_POST['query'] = $_GET['query'];" would have to be added.. in theory.
I don't know about security settings but if you only allow those search variables to be accessible there should be no risk afaik.
.. or just wait for firefox to support the GET method.. oh well..
