Just checked out Dowser and the first thing I noticed was that I
couldn't get to it in Firefox using the usual search box. No problem.
Whip into your Firefox install folder and look for a folder named
"searchplugins". It's usually "c:\Program Files\Mozilla
Create a file called dowser.src and paste the following in
<input name="q" user>
<input name="s" value="google">
<inputnext name="start" factor="10">
<inputprev name="start" factor="10">
charset = "UTF-8"
You'll also need an image file. I was lazy and just copied an existing
one but just make sure it's got the same name as the .src file. e.g.
Restart firefox and you're done.
Next you'll prob want to make this your default search engine. In the
Firefox location bar type about:config and look for the entry
"browser.search.defaultenginename" and change this to the "name" entry
in dowser.src. In the example above this is "Dowser"
Restart and you're away. Note that I've stuck this on google but you
could modify this so everything went through Dowser. Create files for
google, amazon, wikipedia, 43folders and just and the "name" value and
the value of "s" and make sure you've set the engine up in Dowser and
away you go.
Might have to play with this more myself :)
