Google have just released into beta testing the new ‘Personalize’ interface. From mucking around with it this evening, I have to say that it rocks, but most of the time when I’m using Google, it’s though the Search box in Firefox, so here is how to make that use Google personalisation:

  1. Download this file
  2. Save it into the searchplugins directory of your Firefox install directory.
  3. (Optional) Copy the “google.gif” file that is in the same directory to be called “google-personalisation.gif” (You don’t have to do this, but you get the google icon for it instead of the default magnifying glass)
  1. Restart Firefox

    (As far as I know, this also works with Firebird and anything else that has the Mycroft extension installed)
