Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwardsSoren Kierkegaard
A little behind the competition, Google has just rolled out My Search History Beta which saves your search beahviour and provides quick access to previous searches using a clustered interface. Chris Sherman discusses My Search History in detail over at Search Engine Watch. If like me your requests from the Firefox searchbar are redirected to your locality (eg google.co.uk), the magic variable seems to be lr. So the following src file (in the searchplugins directory of your Firefox installation directory) will ensure all searches go through the MSH application:
<search name="Google History" description="Google Search with History Enabled" method="GET" action="http://www.google.com/search" queryEncoding="utf-8" queryCharset="utf-8" > <input name="q" user> <input name="hl" value="en"> <input name="lr" value=""> <input name="btnG" value="Search"> </search>
I look forward to seeing how well the clustering engine works as my search results grow…
