JDeveloper and Firefox mashup

Like almost everyone else that I know I use Firefox as my browser. It simply has a better set of features that I got used to very easily.
The market statistics say that Firefox holds about 10% of the browser market - if I look at the statistics for the OTN site it is way higher, somewhere around 27% for Firefox - so I'm not alone in this camp.

One of the nice features is the search box at the top right where you can type a word and search it in various search engines.
And now you can get this functionality in JDeveloper too.

Rob just published an extension that adds a search box to JDeveloper. It uses the same set of search plug-ins that you have for firefox.
You can get it from the check-for-update.

And if you are working with XML in JDeveloper you might be interested in his second extension that adds an XPath query tab to every XML file.

Hi Shay, Cn you please tell me whether the ADF Hierarchy viewer works in Firefox? If yes, then what kind of plugins do I need to download? Shib

Shib, works. You need flash to see it.

Yes it does - you need Flash installed on your client
