With the recent addition of open search plugins to the very latest Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers you can now write a single opensearch plugin for use with both Firefox and Internet Explorer!
These search plugins, documentation, solution are a direct result of the eZpedia community documentation project, Kristof Coomans and Graham Brookins.

This means Internet Explorer (v7), Firefox and other browsers can now share search plugins written using the OpenSearch Standard. Open Search plugins are simple files in xml format and the latest supported standard.
This is the new standard being supported to provide for cross browser compatible search plugins. This effectively deprecates previous implementations as most wish to bridge this gap rather than foster it.
