To do what? You can already add it as a search engine in Firefox and Chrome...

There can be some great things done with Chrome and Firefox extensions.  Search can be installed in it.

We had a Firefox extension for a while, but it didn't get used much. The feature it offered was preventing you from going to parked domains. If there are other compelling features, I'm not opposed to make one, but I don't see the hook yet.

Gabriel, is a Firefox toolbar on the agenda? I thought I saw it in the Firefox plug-in index, but nothing seems to come down the line.

What do you mean about nothing coming down the line? There should be two plugins in there that add DDG to the search box (one for SSL).

We actually used to have a more full toolbar that had the main feature of stopping you going to parked domains. But this wasn't really a hit, so I took it down.

What would you want to see out of a toolbar?
