Eddie’s MetaLink Search Plus

We probably have a pretty high overlap percentage with Eddie so many of you have already seen this. Still, I want to point out a sweet Greasemonkey script he published yesterday.

The script expands your keyword search on MetaLink to a host of other engines: Oracle documentation, blogs, public forums and mailing lists, AskTom, search.oracle.com and Google, adding inline links to them in MetaLink. Clicking the links opens the results in a new tab.

I’m sure Rich approves, since he wrote Monkeygrease, a server-side version of Greasemonkey.

Hats off to Eddie, who has two young kids and a day job, and yet somehow manages to hack together useful stuff in free time that should be used for sleep.
