?? I don't really know what this addon is used for, and for which use case it could have an interest. When typing in the awesome bar, by default Firefox proposes to select one among all the installed search engines.
Why would you want to install an addon for a feature that's been available in FF and has been available for a good 3 or 4 years? Go to preference > search. Scroll down the Search page until you hit One Click Search Engines. Choose the search engine you want to put a hotkey for, next to it you'll find a Keyword column. Put the keyword you want. If you want to reproduce the experience of this plugin, set DuckDuckGo's keyword to: ?k - though personally I would use d for duckduckgo, g for google, y for youtube, e for ebay, a for amazon, ff for firefox addons etc. Don't forget that you can add more search plug-ins through mycroft project's website.
Glad this exists, because having independent search and address bar is essential to how I use the internet. However, it's sad to have to use a k---I'm guessing that this is part of the new standards for extensions? Is there any hope for the future of being able to implement this without the k?
I loved the SDK version, for allowing me to have two search engines at hand. I understand that there are MANY limitations on the WebExtensions, compared to the SDK.
Hopefully, when those limits will be relaxed, this extension will become usable again. But until then, this extension is pretty much useless, as searching by keyword is already implemented (and configurable) in the basic Firefox installation.
While I greatly appreciate the new version for the new browser, it's kind of pointless if you need to type k. I can already type 'g ' to search google even though default is wiki. I loved this extension because I don't need to type the key-letter. Will it ever be possible do you think, or should I roll back to the old version of FF?
