FarrWebMetaSearch should be able to handle anything that can be reasonably processed by a Regex. Now to be honest I'm not sure a Regex is the best thing to process JSON.

Thanks for the feedback smiley

Results for the current case are an array of 2-element arrays, so look something like:

[copy or print]
[["something", "related"],["another thing","another relate"],...]

The problem with FarrWebMetaSearch is that it doesn't operate on a Web Site's official API, but instead tries to collect search results by grabbing content directly from a Site's web page (using regular expressions). Unfortunately, a slight change on the side of the provider of the respective Web Site can cause such a regex to not work any more, making the concept of the plugin somewhat flawed.

Which search did you try?
