Re: Firefox Beagle Search Bar...

I like this idea - you don't need a separate utility to connect to beagled - you can fire a browser and search information from Beagle daemon - very intuitive for users.

Google Desktop Beta seems to use this approach. When you do a Google desktop search, it opens a web browser that sends requests to a localhost http server at port 4664.
What are the concerns in having XSP running ?

If you're willing to have xsp running, it would be -very- easy using the
existing search bar in Firefox. Porting Best to behave like an ASP.NET
component would be pretty straight forward I think.
