“How to” search the Xda Developers’ forum within Windows Explorer

XDA Moderator faria posted about a great method to search through the Xda Developers forum within your Windows Explorer by adding a plug-in loaded in your Favorites on your PC. The developer mentions that the search is powered by OpenSearch.org and Google, but if anyone want any others search providers he is open to requests.
The plug in was tested on Windows 7 x86 & x64 and may work on Vista but not on XP.
Please leave your feedback.
