    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

    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
