What is a Search Engine Plugin?
A search engine plugin allows you to access a search engine directly from your browser. In Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer you use the search bar at the top right. Microsoft appears to prefer the term Search Provider but there is no difference in function. There are also tools to add search capability to right click menus and other locations.
Note: If you are looking for browser plug-ins go to PluginDoc.
