Description: beside smart bookmarks you have searchplugins in firefox. unfortunately in the mozilla addon repo doesn't have one for CPAN, but David showed how to get one. but because ff3 has a new API we need an update which i deliver here now:
<SearchPlugin xmlns="">
<Description>Comprehensive Perl Archive Network</Description>
<Image width="16" height="16">data:image/x-icon,%00%00%01%00%01%00%10%
<Url type="text/html" method="GET" template="
  <Param name="query" value="{searchTerms}"/>
  <Param name="mode" value="all"/>

    Actually it does exist, but not in the "easy to find/general public targeted" search tool. It's on mycroft and there even are several variants. You'll find many other search engine gems on Mycroft...
        Great :) I found it so cool I advertised it on reddit ....
