This is GENIUS! I find that I often come across an item, or a quest which requires some extra help and Thottbott is great.

I would however wonder if its possible to have the result piped to the widget rather than open a safari window? Much like the Apple Yellow Pages widget?

I gave it a 5 for fucntionality cuz it does what it says..but what's the point?

Why would I go into Dashboard when I can jsut go directly to

Now it would be different if the info loaded in the widget window...but it doesn't.

There's a problem if you search for multiple words queries, at least using firefox as main browser.
This is because of the blank spaces not being replaced by the standard "+" characters for url encoding.
I resolved changing the line:

<form id="searchForm" action="javascript:widget.openURL('' + searchInput.value); searchInput.value=''">


<form id="searchForm" action="javascript:widget.openURL('' + searchInput.value.replace(/ /gi,'+')); searchInput.value=''">
