FeFoo Search – put your Firefox search box on steroids


The new FeFoo search application is a Firefox extension which adds super hero functionality to your browser search box. The fab thing is it works seamlessly. Use it conventionally and it will return standard default results from your favourite search engine, say Google.


But if you need more just enter in a : (colon) followed by a code to get some very specialised search power at your fingertips. I particularly like the ability to search my Gmail messages from the browser just by adding :em in front of the search term (e.g. :em john’s party). And it’s not just search either. There’s around 60 codes you can use with the tool, including ones to post a message direct to twitter, to translate a web page, download a video and much much more.

An instant keeper for me, and something I’ll be using a lot!

 When you add fefoo search it uses Google Search by default and you can search like you would normally search. But the real magic begins when you use commands. To differentiate a command from a normal search it begins with a : (colon). If you want to search for “fefoo” on “bing” use the command “:bing fefoo” and search. If you want to search for “fefoo” on twitter use the command “:twitter fefoo”. To see a complete list of commands use the command “:help”. fefoo search is a simple search application made entirely in JavaScript.
