The goal

Improve search experience

The situation before

Songbird once believed the software was meant to play the web, but later began to remove some web parts. Because the software is based of XULRunner, we share some Firefox features like search bar and url bar. Still, we don't have a classic search engine.

Solution proposed

  • By default we can integrate a web search using the current search box at the top right corner
  • We could also ship a bookmark on the left servicepane (This was done for SkreemR before)

What to do

  • Decide which search engine we should use (Duckduckgo, Seeks, Google, Bing, Yahoo…)

GitHub issues

  • #104 Web Search engine

Testing

You can install the DuckDuckGo search plugin here.
