Google – the XUL version

In: Mozilla

For the benefit of those of you not using Mozilla Firefox, here’s a screencap:

I’ve had that bookmarked for over a year now, but completely forgot about it. Bookmark it, then set it to load in the sidebar, and you’ve got a nice little Google sidebar. Kind of a round about way to do it when you can Google from the built-in search bar, but it does let you search Google News, Groups, Images, etc. all from one spot without having to load new pages.

I wonder if they’re *trying* to get people to think Google Browser will be Gecko based?

Perhaps this is the first google page that is XML compliant. At least, google doesn’t have a great track record yet with valid pages.
