I recently went to add a Search Engine to Firefox and found that the Add-ons web site has had an overhaul. “Cool” I thought “but where the heckedy heck are all the Search Engines?”. Or words to that effect.

In the good ol’ days, when you clicked on Manage Search Engines…, you were taken to a page chock-full of Search Engine goodness. But now, I can’t find any at all. Very perplexing.

I’m sure it’s just a temporary hitch, and in the meantime here’s a link to the Mycroft Search Engine plugin site.

About Jake Rayson

A web designer since the 20th century, I am a pragmatic advocate of Free Software and I use proprietary software when appropriate. I made the full-time switch to Linux back in 2007, and my desktop tools of choice are Linux Mint, Inkscape, GIMP and Sublime Text.

As a Front End Developer, my core skills are HTML5, CSS3 and jQuery, and my working life reflects my commitment to open standards and accessible websites (ie accessible by everyone, regardless of browser, platform, ability or technology).

For web publishing platforms, I use WordPress for ease of use and Drupal for more complex solutions.

I am also learning about Ruby, Rails, Sinatra and CoffeeScript. I like the minimalist Ruby Way. To this end, my personal portfolio website is built with NestaCMS.
