Answers.com Search Box Plug-in
Add Answers.com as an option for your Firefox search box!
Not so exclusive after all... ;) In fact, you can get answers.com toolbars and integrated searches in all the major browsers, so the difference here boils down to the co-branding, the revenue-sharing and the fact that you probably can't remove it.
