Personal weblog of Ted Pavlic. Includes lots of MATLAB and LaTeX (computer typesetting) tips along with commentary on all things engineering and some things not. An endless effort to keep it on the simplex.
While on that page, click on the down arrow in the icon in your your Firefox search toolbar. You should see several "Add" options at the bottom. That lets you add several different types of CTAN search to your toolbar.
You can then "Manage Search Engines" and add a keyword to some of them. I use the keyword "ctan" to search package ID's and the keyword "ctanp" to search over package ID's and descriptions. The keyword lets me search directly from the awesome bar without having to use the search bar.
[ These definitions were inspired by firefox_ctan_plugins by Martin Engler, but those don't work with CTAN anymore. ]
