I find that I keep reverting to MobyGames
for game-related links, searches etc. Trixter's baby project is an
awesome resource for the sort of info I often look for, and I figured
that it would be really great if I could do a MobyGames search directly
I constantly do with eBay, Amazon etc.). I spent a couple of minutes
looking through MobyGames' prominent navigation links for a solution
with none to be found, so I figured I'll just add it to Firefox myself.
The browser linked me to Firefox's "add engines"
web page, but as luck would have it, the Mozilla servers were down at
that exact moment. I figured that since I can't do it myself at the
moment I might as well have a look if someone else'd already done it -
which apparently they did; if you click through the Friends of Moby page in MobyGames you'd get a very improperly-positioned link to their Firefox search button. I happily clicked it, it works like a charm and dead useful.
This only goes to show that even the most useful tool, application
or whatever will be completely ignored if it's not prominently
showcased! I'll be sending an e-mail to the great guys at MobyGames
