The name Mycroft refers to Mycroft Holmes, the brother of Sherlock Holmes in the novels of Arthur Conan Doyle — Mycroft plugins are based on the Sherlock standard.A search plugin allows you to access a search engine right from your browser. In Mozilla Firefox, you use the search box on the toolbar. In Mozilla (Seamonkey) you can access plugins via the Sidebar or the Location Bar. See our screenshots for more details.Technically, a search plug-in is a text file that describes the information to send to a search engine and how to interpret the results. A small icon completes the plug-in so that search plug-ins are easily recognized.
