    You don't want to, but basicly how a search engine works is that, it has "spiders" or "bots" that go on every single site and CACHE them (once a day, or once a week, depending on how good the searchsite is) And when you search, it actually goes through the text cached and finds sites for you. Then again, theres a REALLY complicated algorithm that decides which sites comes first and so on.

    So yea, you would need crazy servers / computers for that

    Only took you 1 month to correct your first post.

    Here take a look at this: http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs...ns_for_Firefox
    You can apparantly use the plugin you create for firefox AND IE7
