I'm proud to announce a brand new download on ookii.org: Find As You Type for Internet Explorer.
Find As You Type provides "interactive search" capabilities similar to Firefox and Emacs, but for Internet Explorer. It works on Internet Explorer 5 and higher (including IE7, of course). It'll work on x86 and x64 versions of Windows.
This has been my first venture into creating an IE add-on, and also the first big unmanaged C++ Win32 project I've done in a long while. Although MS is keen to emphasise that IE, like Firefox, can indeed be extended (and not just for spyware either!), but it's difficult, very difficult.
Over the next few days I intend to make a few blog posts documenting some of the pitfalls I've encountered. In particular I'll cover those issues that are not only under-documented on MSDN, but whose answer can't be easily found using a Google search.
The following is a list of these articles. I will add links as more articles become available.
