A few months ago, I posted some handy search popups that I cobbled together using a simple popup that Google offers to users of browsers that can't handle their über-proprietary IE/Win toolbar jobby.
I've since updated the popups quite a bit and since I still get emails from people who use them and like them, I figured I would share the wealth. Especially as I finally figured out how to make a "real" Amazon search rather than going through Kokogiak's Amazon Lite service.
But I digress. Drag these to a folder in your link bar. The last one is a modified version of the inimitable Zeldman's Resize for Cinema bookmark which I'm only including here because it's the other bookmark I reach for first when using a new terminal and I want to stash it someplace where I can google it at any time.
Some notes: The AmazonSearch will search all categories (books, DVDs, etc) in one fell swoop. The eBaySearch hits names AND descriptions. IMDbSearch will find names as well as titles. You can use quotes in your searches to find "exact sets of words" the same way you would in a normal search box. Pretty handy.

Ooh, and they're easily customisable to make them UK-centric. Bonus!

The Dictionary one is Great. But, how about it opening in a new tab instead of leaving the window? It would be more useful to me.
Please keep making more!

I have been searching a long time for a comparable feature to the highlight button implementation in the google toolbar. You know, the one that let's you highlight search terms on a web page?

I second the nomination of Mapquest. I would use it 10 times a day! Open in a new window. Use almost all of your other ones, thanks!

One of these days I will update this list again, too. The Epicurious search doesn't work anymore, for one thing. And I've cobbled together a few more.
