    Mycroft

    The Mycroft project provides a collection of search plugins for Mozilla-based web browsers. The open source project is hosted on Mozdev.org and has been in existence since 2000. The project is named after Mycroft Holmes, the fictional older, smarter, and less ambitious brother of Sherlock Holmes, as a reference to Mycroft being based on Apple Computer’s Sherlock search technology.

    Sherlock was Apple’s file/web search app. Mycroft is Mozilla’s version of this?

    Mycroft. Apple had the Sherlock search for Mac OS and so Mozilla named their search after Holmes’ smarter brother.

    Google by default, but Mycroft is also significant here.
