Be careful with old versions!
These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.
* Added two links to the Formatted View: "Try mining the current page template" and "Restore the default page template".
* Updated the Google extraction template again since it has reverted its recent HTML changes.
* Removed image.cn.yahoo.com from the default engine list since it now has frame-busting protection.

* Fixed the default templates for those image search engines.
* Made wikipedia one of the default 3 search engines for non-zh locales (taking the position of ask.com which is damn slow).
* Fixed the favicons in the Mapping View (we now use ordinary with tooltips :))
* Always sticking to the formatted view per cnhackTNT++'s suggestion.
* Fixed the default selector patterns for the following sites due to their recent changes in page tempaltes:
* Fixed the font size of www.yahoo.cn, www.yahoo.com, and www.yisou.com
* Also make the keyword lightlights in these two sites' formatted view red rather than bold and black.
* Added a loading icon to the mapping view since its loading is not that fast.
* Updated jquery.js to the latest release, 1.2.2.
* Made yisou.com one of the default search engines instead of www.yahoo.cn which is a bit slow.
* Renamed so.163.com to www.yodao.com due to 163's changes.
* Found a theme that can break SearchAll: Scribblies Kids 2.3 (thanks to Liu Jianqiang).
* Fixed the font for search.yahoo.com in the Formatted View.
* Fixed a refreshing issue regarding www.ask.com in the Formatted View when web is slow.
* Fixed the opensearch shortcut for www.yodao.com
* Fixed the displaying bug when working with the theme Scribblies Kids 2.3. (Thanks this theme's author for bringing me a fix.)

* Always display 'Sorry, no results found' in the Formatted View at the *right* time.
Thanks my new AMO editor Archaeopteryx++ for reporting this :)

* Fixed a bug in thread.js which prevents unnecessary refreshes of the Formatted view.

No duplicate search engines will appear at the same time now (unless the user forces it to).
* Now defaulting to English search engines (yahoo.com, google.com/en, and ask.com) when the user's locale is not zh-*.
* Rewrote the JS internals by using the OO style.
* Implemented daemon threads which incrementally render the Formatted views while the Original views are loading.
So SearchAll should be much faster in relatively bad web conditions.
* Added OpenSearch shortcuts for most of the sites in the default list.
So it should be now 50% faster at startup as well as when switching search engines.
* Removed search.cpan.org from the default SE list since it's new page template is troublesome for data extracting.
* Added support for the Spanish locale es-ES, thanks Gregorio Villarrubia for contributing the transcript.

It now has 5 potential marks: Checking, Bad, Good, Timed out, and Uncertain (clouds).

zh-CN, zh-TW, en-US, and fr
The fr locale needs review. Feedback welcome!
