Is it just me, or could the “IE Add-ons Contest” have been renamed the “IE Add-the-features-Firefox-has-that-we-don’t Contest”? Of the four top addons, three implement Firefox features for IE. And the last is an extension we had first.
Even the description page for the grand prize winner admits as much:
Inline Search is an add-on for Internet Explorer that mimics Firefox’s search behavior…
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery :-)
