Search plugins: Search Oracle docs from your browser search bar

Tired of navigating to the SQL documentation every time you need to look up syntax? I created a search plugin so that you can search the SQL documentation directly from your browser’s search bar:


If you’re going to be doing a lot of looking-up, you can make this your default search engine. Click on “Change search settings” in the search bar dropdown, or go to Preferences > Search and select it:

change default search

I also created a search plugin for the 12c database documentation as a whole.

To install either or both plugins in Firefox, go to this page and click on the “Install Search Plugin” button.

Tested in Firefox. OpenSearch plugins reportedly work in IE too. Use IE? Try it and let me know if it works for you.

UPDATE: I added these plugins to as well. Thanks, Uwe, for pointing me to it! Also, check out Uwe’s OERR search plugin in the comments below.
