Every now and again one comes across an awesome plugin that demonstrates some fantastic integration between day-to-day applications and IBM's Connections collaboration platform.  This one is a Connections search plugin for Chrome, and it's awesome.

From the description:

"This extension let you search content within IBM Connections.

The IBM Connections QuickSearch plugin let you quickly search for users or content within IBM Connections and update your profile picture using your webcam or an existing picture.

Use the popup window in the upper right corner of chrome in order to search within Profiles (with type-ahead feature), Files, Forums and so on.

You can also use it directly from the URL navigation bar, by typing "ic" (without any quotes) following by a space then your query. Then press enter for a global search or arrow keys to reduce the scope."

As in Figure 1 - above - just type "ic" to activate the Connections search in the type-ahead bar, and then type your search string; OR click on the Connections icon to limit your search to specific features of Connections.

The first time you activate the plugin you will be asked to enter your Connections server settings, including:

Your server,
Your username, and
Your password

Pretty simple.

"Good post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I

stumbleupon everyday. It will always be helpful to read content from other authors and use a

little something from their web sites"

"Great article I've been following along, and when I get to the Load Unpacked Extension part, the icon that appears in chrome://extensions has something added to it. It's a camera symbol inside orange circle. This is laid on top of my icon in the bottom right hand corner. What is that?

I'll try the Panda5 extension. Right now I put the websites I visit everyday in a folder in the navbar. Every morning I right click on it and select ""Open all"". It does what I need but Panda5 might be more user-focused. Thanks for the recommendation.

No matter if some one searches for his vital thing, so he/she desires to be available that in detail, so that thing is maintained over here.
