TT alternative Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For those few still occasionally checking this page in dim hope of seeing updates for newer firefox versions i'd like to suggest alternative i started to use instead of TT - that is Second Search addon.
Maybe i wouldn't have found/switched to it if i'd manage to get working TT, but well, but as it got more and more broken (starting with having to change or override version for addon to install, then having to generate profile within older version of FF or editing profile by hand to add 2nd search control) until it stopped working at all even with those hacks.
I also changed options to SS to show only two most recent used search engines.
Cons of Second Search addon compared to TT - it's not actually another search control, so one needs additionally press up cursor key to use different search engine to perform current search (without switching default one).
Pros of SS: less browser estate space used then two search controls (especially if more then two search controls were used).
Imho less space used is worth having to press once up-key before return key to search, and hey .. finally no fuss with dropped support & not updated addon.
Hope this helps other TT users too. RIP TT :(
