Lookpick Search Box 0.3.1
A personal server-based search box. Users can choose from hundreds of search engines instantly. After creating a free account, they can add new search engines on the fly using the browser's context menu. The search engines can be organized and shared at lookpicking.com.
About this Add-on
The context menu makes adding new search engines to your list as easy as right-clicking on any text field on a web form, selecting "Lookpick this..." and choosing a name for the new entry.
But all these search engines don't mean that you can't just type your query in the search box without selecting any search engine upfront: if you do so, you will be taken to your default search engine's results that you can specify at lookpicking.com. Moreover, you can easily jump back and forth between the browser's standard search field and the lookpick search box.

You will never get unsolicited email from lookpicking.com. If you explicitly agree to receive news from lookpicking.com, this will never be more than one email per month.
Your actual search queries are not recorded, not even submitted to lookpicking.com. The only part of your search habits that does get recorded is a single number for each search engine representing the frequency with wich you are using it (again, just a single number, so no access times and the like.) This number is used solely to sort the list of auto-suggested search engines, so that your most-used search engines will show up at the top.
