Despite being nearly in Easter, and we would all rather be on another Easter bunny's treasure hunt and eating chocolate eggs, we have managed in the last week to include a few more novelties to the euroalert.net international edition. Cast your eyes to the left hand side of the page. We have published an opensearch plugin with which you can add euroalertSearch to your own browser's Search Bar. Installing it means that you can use our specially configured search engine, without having to visit the euroalert.net website every time you want to find European Union information.
It is fully compatible with Mozilla Firefox as well as Internet Explorer 7. To install and try it, you simply have to click on this link (or on the image at the beginning of the article) and accept the dialogue box. If you are not convinced after having tried it, to remove it is very simple through the preferences menu of your navigator search bar. We have published more information in the Euroalert.net widgets section and if you have any doubts email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try and help.
We have also published a larger variety of euroalert.net icons and buttons for making links to the m information sections, as we said we would last week. For each section we have used icons with the regular size of height 17 pixels. The width of each icon varies slightly according to the text it holds. However, none exceeded 104 pixels so that you may use them in lateral columns (1 o 2) of websites on the right or left of the main text.
We intend to release very soon the widget code for the euroalertSearch search engine, which can be used to include euroalertSearch on your website or blog. We hope you like and in the mean time we will continue working on euroalert.net to make its services even more efficient and useful for you all.
