RECAP Firefox Search Plugin

2010 September 2

One of the ideas behind the RECAP project is that once government data is made accessible in a free and open format, people will find useful new ways to search and process that data. We have heard from many folks looking to do interesting things with the documents archived by RECAP, and last year a group of students built the searchable web-based RECAP Archive. Today, Brian Carver shared a simple tool he built on top of that — a Firefox RECAP search plugin. You know that little search box in the top-right corner of Firefox? If you install his plugin you can choose the RECAP Archive as one of the search engines in the drop-down menu, so that finding free federal court documents is even easier.

Pretty cool!
