Firefox Plug-In for UMN People Search

Firefox, and several other browsers, support a really simple method for adding search engines to that little search box in the upper right corner of the browser window. There's a list of some common ones at the Firefox Search Engines Page. Here at the U of M, the Libraries have implemented their own. I thought it would be nice to have one for the U of M's People Search, a directory search tool that let's you find email addresses, phone numbers, etc.

Here's the link to install the search engine for Firefox (and other compatible browsers):
Install UMN People Search

Here's the XML definition file:
