Just looking at the search alias in Core-Search.alias, it looks like it hasn't been updated in a while:

Quote
Google - $$1 | http://www.google.com/search?q=$$1 /ICON=icons\google.ico
Yahoo - $$1 | http://search.yahoo.com/s...=robo&ei=UTF-8&p=$$1 /ICON=icons\yahoo.ico
MSN - $$1 | http://search.msn.com/results.asp?q=$$1 /ICON=icons\msn.ico  is now Bing but it works anyway
AltaVista - $$1 | http://www.altavista.com/web/results?q=$$1 /ICON=icons\altavista.ico is now Yahoo
Ask - $$1 | http://web.ask.com/web?q=$$1 /ICON=icons\ask.ico ohmy srsly?
AllTheWeb - $$1 | http://www.alltheweb.com/search?cs=utf-8&q=$$1 /ICON=icons\alltheweb.ico is also now Yahoo
GoogleGroups - $$1 | http://groups.google.com/groups?q=$$1&sa=N&tab=wg /ICON=icons\google.ico
Omgili Forum - $$1 | http://www.omgili.com/omgili.search?q=$$1 /ICON=icons\omgili.ico

omgli I had never heard of (or forgot about it) until I saw it in FARR. It's a nice forum search, though, I like it.

I would suggest cleaning up a little and adding DuckDuckGo (can't think of any others that would be good)
There is a lot of interest in secure searches these days, so maybe some of these should be made into https:// versions.
On the other hand, I guess a lot of people just do plugins or alias packs and these don't really need to be changed, I don't know.

I'd like to request some help preparing new aliases.. if someone was willing to edit the core aliases to bring them up to date (and add any new items or new alias files), I'd love to have the help and would updated the core files.

For some time, my default search in Firefox has been a Google search limited to results from the past year. It's amazing how much outdated junk this filters out when doing technology searches. Wonder if other search engines (such as DuckDuckGo) have something similar.

Seems like this could be done one alias at a time on threads such as this one, then if there is some agreement, someone can compile them.
