GNOME Amazon Search Plugins for Epiphany

In order to get referral fees for the GNOME foundation I made some search plugins for Firefox. Since Firefox is actually not the official GNOME browser I got some questions to also release search plugins for Epiphany. Epiphany does not support the OpenSearch plugins that Firefox supports but has smart books, that you can add. So if you add bookmarks with the following URLs and use these for searching your product at Amazon you’ll be giving referral fees to the GNOME foundation.

Here are the URLs:

  • Amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/s?mode=blended&search-alias=aps&tag=gnomesearchplugin-20&field-keywords=%s
  • Amazon.ca: http://www.amazon.ca/s?mode=blended&search-alias=aps&tag=gnomesearchplugin-ca-20&field-keywords=%s
  • Amazon.co.uk: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s?mode=blended&search-alias=aps&tag=gnomesearchplugin-uk-21&field-keywords=%s
  • Amazon.de: http://www.amazon.de/s?mode=blended&search-alias=aps&tag=gnomesearchplugin-de-21&field-keywords=%s
  • Amazon.fr: http://www.amazon.fr/s?mode=blended&search-alias=aps&tag=gnomesearchplugin-fr-21&field-keywords=%s
  • Amazon.co.jp: http://www.amazon.co.jp/s?mode=blended&search-alias=aps&tag=gnomesearchplugin-jp-22&field-keywords=%s

You can also find the URLs in the GNOME Amazon Store

Maybe also a good idea to add these smart bookmarks by default to Epiphany, such that in distros these smart bookmarks are immediately used.

BTW things are going well these month with the referral fees. We are already close to 250$ and still a week to go. It certainly helped that somebody bought a $2000 camera.

Firefox users can use the link below. NOTE these links use javascript to install the searchplugin so the links don’t work if you click on them in an RSS reader. Just go directly to this post
