Ultra-convenient search, thanks to you!

A while back, I blogged about a new embedded search feature we were thinking about building into the site. It is a simple search plug-in that works in Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and some other browsers..

The way it works is that you can add it to you browser (from pretty much any place on and then use the search plug-in built into your browser to search

Thanks to your feedback, we recently implemented this feature as a permanent fixture on 

You can use this search even if you’re not right there on the site. (I am surprised to hear that people visit other web sites, but I suppose sometimes they need to read interesting articles on NetworkWorld, etc)

If you want to install extra features (like searching via bug IDs, or IOS command lookups, and other goodies) you can add those from our search plug-in page.

By the way, your feedback via the blog, site feedback, and your participation in the NetPro idea center help us decide on features like these, so keep up the feedback!
