Pre Challenge Day 3: adding countries to the Google Global extension.
I would like to offer my two cents on extending the functionality of the "Google global extension".
I'm writing this while using the Firefox extension.
I'm personally sticking with firefox since all the extension in today's video are already installed on my FF installation.
In case you haven't noticed it is possible to add more local searches.
If you click on the Google Global button you should see "options" at the bottom of the list.
If you click on that a new window will open.
At the bottom there's a big box titled "Current Google Global Searches".
Below that is a button which says "Add New Search".
Clicking on that will change the look of the window and now it is possible to fill in some boxes.
To my knowledge there are only three required boxes: "Name", "Extension" and "Country Code"
Let's add France as an example.
In "Name' you fill in "France" (without the quotes).
In "Extension" you fill in ".fr" (without the quotes).
In "Country Code" you fill in "FR" (without the quotes).
Let's add Brasil as an other example.
In "Name' you fill in "Brazil" (without the quotes).
In "Extension" you fill in ".com.br" (without the quotes).
In "Country Code" you fill in "BR" (without the quotes).
Click on save to return to the main options screen.
Click on OK to close the window and return to your browser.
Now try a search and choose France or Brazil by clicking on the Google Global button.
If you're not sure what the extension is for a certain country then you might want to download a
