"Search quicker/smarter. An OpenSearch Plug-in is simply a tool that allows you to access a search engine directly from your browser. If you're using Firefox 2.0 or Internet Explorer 7.0 (IE 7) you may already be familiar with the small browser window in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. The default search engine is typically either Google or Yahoo!. In addition to these search options you can now add U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), Learning Resource Center (LRC) Catalog, LRC Fire Search, and other site searches into your array of ready search engines on your IE 7 or Firefox 2.0 browser."
