The new Amazon search site, A9 (based on Google search results) is all the buzz today. You can read about it at kottke.org, metafilter, and John Battelle's Searchblog.
For any Firefox users those interested in trying it out, I have put together a quick A9 search plugin for Firefox.
Install the A9 Search Plugin for Firefox
Hm... nice, I was just going to do that myself (Firefox plugin)... Though I wonder if there's any way we could get the diary/note-taking function as a Firefox extension. That's the only reason I'm personally interested in A9... For kids and adults doing a lot of research for papers etc, notes on webpages would be extremely useful.
Update: I've written a brief review of the A9 search site.
The Firefox plugin is not installing today. I am using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8
How is this thing supposed to work?I clicked on A9 Install the A9 Search Plugin for Firefox, butI can see no change. Something about a search bar or something?I'm running Firefox 1.0 on Debian Linux Testing with a 2.4.28kernel. Any help would be appreciated.
Peter, try clicking on the little magnifying glass (or Google G) in the search bar. It should drop down a list with your A9 search plugin.
