IE11 Menu Addons – New Version – 1 – Happy New Year!

New Internet Explorer 11 Menus Version

 

This release basically fixes a few bugs and adds Google Music Search to the menu. I’ll be using whole numbers from now on on these installers (just makes things easier). I had to remove tumblr from the menu as their format changed (no more sharing with a GET request). Fixed the Fetch and Guess tools to be compliant with their new versions – so they should work properly. The spaces in query bug in Google Open Storage search was fixed – so multi word queries work properly.

Download and Install IE11 Menu Addons for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1

New Version Completed – Read and download from here.

If you’re paranoid about the download – the hash values for the file are listed on the Repo page.

Google Chrome Extension – Alexa Search, an Omnibox extension

Google Chrome Omnibox Search extension that enables you to search Alexa (alexa.com) from the Omnibox.  To use, simply type ‘alx’, a space, and your search query into the Omnibox and it will open your search results up in a new tab.

manifest.json


{
	"name" : "Alexa Search",
	"short_name": "alx Search",
	"description" : "To use, type 'alx' & space, and a query term into the Omnibox. timothytocci.com",
	"version" : "0.1",
	"background" : {
		"scripts" : ["background.js"]
	},
	"omnibox" : {
		"keyword" : "alx"
	},
	"icons" : {
		"16" : "alx_16.png",
		"32" : "alx_32.png",
		"48" : "alx_48.png",
		"128" : "alx_128.png"
	},
	"manifest_version" : 2
}

background.js


chrome.omnibox.onInputEntered.addListener(function (text) {
	var createProperties = {
		url : "http://www.alexa.com/search?q="
		 + encodeURIComponent(text)
	};
	chrome.tabs.create(createProperties);
});

America-Online-Web-Search, Browser Extension, Google Chrome, Javascript

Google Chrome Extension – America Online (aol.com) Web Search, an Omnibox extension

Google Chrome Omnibox Search extension that enables you to search America Online (aol.com) from the Omnibox.  To use, simply type ‘aol’, a space, and your search query into the Omnibox and it will open your search results up in a new tab. While America Online has web search that also sports the ‘Powered By Google’ badge, America Online has had web search features for quite some time and I believe they supplement their results with their own. The ranking is different at the very least.

manifest.json


{
	"name" : "America Online Web Search",
	"short_name": "aol Search",
	"description" : "To use, type 'aol' & space, and a query term into the Omnibox. timothytocci.com",
	"version" : "0.1",
	"background" : {

	"omnibox" : {

Amazon-Web-Search, Browser Extension, Google Chrome, Javascript

Google Chrome Extension – Amazon Web Search, an Omnibox extension

Google Chrome Omnibox Search extension that enables you to search the web using Amazon from the Omnibox.  While still experimental at Amazon and powered by Google; if Amazon turns its computing might towards web search – we’re all in for great results. To be fair, Amazon’s web search experiment is named Amazon Smart Search (which is easily confused with its commercial endeavors) (besides, how would ‘___ query term here’ look to you every day while using it?) – not Amazon Web Search (which is used in the extension). Also, I feel its fair to mention that there’s almost twice as many paid results (ads) on these result pages.

To use, simply type ‘aws’, a space, and your search query into the Omnibox and it will open your search results up in a new tab.

manifest.json


{
	"name" : "Amazon Web Search",
	"short_name": "aws Search",
	"description" : "To use, type 'aws' & space, and a query term into the Omnibox. timothytocci.com",
	"version" : "0.1",
	"background" : {
		"scripts" : ["background.js"]
	},
	"omnibox" : {
		"keyword" : "aws"
	},
	"icons" : {
		"16" : "aweb_16.png",
		"32" : "aweb_32.png",
		"48" : "aweb_48.png",
		"128" : "aweb_128.png"
	},
	"manifest_version" : 2
}

background.js


chrome.omnibox.onInputEntered.addListener(function (text) {
	var createProperties = {
		url : "http://www.amazon.com/gp/bit/apps/web/SERP/search?&query="
		 + encodeURIComponent(text)
	};
	chrome.tabs.create(createProperties);
});
chrome.omnibox.onInputStarted
.addListener(function () {
	var suggestion = {
		description : "Search using Amazon Web Search for the query: %s "

	chrome.omnibox.setDefaultSuggestion(suggestion);
});
