Execute a Tropicos name search directly from your browser

We have added an OpenSearch description document (http://www.opensearch.org/Home) to our site so that name searches can be executed from your browser (regardless of what page you are currently on).

If you are using Chrome, visiting the Tropicos home page (http://www.tropicos.org) will automatically add Tropicos as a search provider.

For Firefox (2.0 and up) and Internet explorer (7 and up), click the "Add Tropicos as a browser search provider" link on the home page.

It appears that Safari still does not support OpenSearch (http://www.opensearch.org/Community/OpenSearch_search_clients). You may be able to a search engine to Safari using Glims (http://www.machangout.com/). Also, see http://www.switchingtomac.com/tutorials/safari/add-new-search-engines-to-safari-with-glims/.
