Go4Expert.com Toolbar for Firefox 1.5+

    After struggling with XUL for about a week, I am finally ready with me very own "G4EF Toolbar for Firefox 1.5+". :happy: :happy: :happy: :happy:

    Here is a preview : :D
    [​IMG]

    Please, don't LOL at the boring skin or the limited number of features. ... I am a newbie to XUL and CSS.

    Currently, the toolbar is in Ver.0.35 and here is the list of features :
    (1) Searches G4EF for matching threads, basically the same as the Google Search-box you see above.
    (2) Searches G4EF for members by their usernames. Now, this one uses some trick to do that. ;) It will return a single result -- the URL of the member's profile, if found.
    (3) Has links to ALL the forums, sub-forums etc...
    (4) Direct link to Today's Posts and Unanswered posts. :)
    (5) Direct link to the $1 Contest forum. ;)

    So, you can virtually navigate the WHOLE G4EF with this toolbar only. (But, it can't log you in)

    I am trying to implement the log in feature in this toolbar. But, the problem is your username and password will be stored in plain-text :( and so can be easily read.

    If you like the toolbar, I can provide you with the XPI file [It's 10KB only !] :)

    Constructive suggestions are always welcome :) :)

    :oops: I forgot to add the "About" dialog :p Anyway, the toolbar always displays my name, as you can see ;)

    Looks good and we had nothing much like this and would like to see if it uses Google Search or Forum Search as I am not sure if we can use Google Search like this when it comes to Google Terms

    @ shabbir:

    G4EF Uses a Google Custom Search too.

    That's what I was telling to him :(

    Google Custom Search Results cannot be linked to as they are against the terms of Google and so I think this should not be allowed

    SaswatPadhi ~ Б0ЯИ Τ0 С0δЭ ~

    I don't use custom search.

    I use simple Google Search.

    FYI - After downloading, open the file from firefox, install it and restart the firefox - Bingo!
    We have our own G4EF Toolbar!!! :)
