I resolved the bug mentioned by Kirilo, and added support for clusty.com as requested by echoes.

For the browser request: you only need to set Opera as your default browser.

Hello,

thanks for that nice plasmoid!
Unfortunately, it doesn't work for me out of the box: When I type a search word and press enter, it opens Konqueror in file manager mode, looking for a file with the name of my searched word in My Documents.
I have to open and close the config dialogue (I don't have to manipulate it*) in order to make it search with google or the like.

*By the way: Checking/unchecking the option "show icon" does nothing.

Thanks for the comments and suggestions guys. I'll try to satisfy all your requests. However I'm a little bit busy so I'can promise It'll will be done quickly. About the mnemonic that could be a good idea as AngelBlue01 suggest. However I think that is not as user frendly as drop down icons like dovidhalevi said or a combo. Including both way would be the best.

Cheers :)

I've been looking for a replacement for Dave's Quick Search Deskbar (http://dqsd.net) for Windows, which allows users to type a mnemonic for a search engine (such as gg for Google) and hit Enter and their browser opens to the search results, this is pretty close.

If that's your goal, which I find more intuitive than having to switch search engines manually, maybe use the same source as Konqueror since it already supports that kind of searching from its address bar.

Also DQSD supports a bunch of search engines by default, some of which it would be nice if your plasmoid supported regardless of your goals for this gadget: A9

Of course as an openSUSE user I'd appreciate the ability to search its package database ;-)

Very nice to have when the browser is not up (all the browsers have their own by now).

Suggestions:
1. Drop down like in Opera's Icon plus drop down to choose search site.
2. User can add their own. Most of these have simple syntax like www.,... search=%s or something like that.
3. Other canned searches such as answers.com. Again, Opera's is a nice implementation.
4. Keyboard quick-search off clipboard?
5. Finally, your own more compact browser window--kde/qt4 has tools and netkit also is available (used by goldendict, for example). More compact and lightweight than hitting konqueror.

It would be nice, if there would be the option, to use the localized sites like de.wikipedia.org.

I have build packages for openSUSE, which can be found here:
