He did it on the Galeon browser which is available on Linux. But unlike gods us mere mortals use windows. So I couldn’t make that Smart Links thing in my browser. Now I have been using Firefox a lean and mean son of mozilla project for quite some time. So I thought there should be way to do this in firefox as it would classify as cousin of galeon. While tinkering along with Firefox I noticed there is Google Search text field in the top right corner, where if I put text it does the search for that text on google. So if I could make something exactly like that.
Google Search functionality in firefox is implemented in a directory called search plugins which had a small text file google.src and the 16×16 gif image of google to show in the text field. Now it was easy, all I had to do was to create a similar file for SAP Notes search and may be a small gif file. Here is the camplete text of my sap.src file
class=cch1># SAP Notes plug-in by Pankaj Kumar <</FONT>search name="SAP Notes" description="SAP Notes Search" method="GET" action="http://service.sap.com/~form/handler" queryEncoding="utf-8" queryCharset="utf-8" > class=cch1> <</FONT>input name="_APP" value="01100107900000000342"> class=cch1><</FONT>input name="_EVENT" value="REDIR"> class=cch1><</FONT>input name="_NNUM" user> class=cch1> <</FONT>interpret browserResultType="result" charset = "UTF-8" resultListStart=""" resultListEnd="" resultItemStart="" resultItemEnd="" >
For added punch I downloaded the favicon.ico of sap.com and saved it as sap.gif in the same directory. Voila I have some thing similar to what DJ Adams mentioned. See the image below.
