Enable search from a localhost server

I first used this feature in Google Desktop Search, which launches a server in the background on some port, so that I can search from within my web browser.

Even while X1 has only indexed 1.205 % of my drives yet, it performs much much better than GDS, which also crashed all the time and never manage to finish indexing my drives.

However, browsers like Firefox and Opera enables us to customize our searches, and it is in the browser I do most my work. It would thus be _very_ convenient if I could also search my local files from the browser.

As Opera is my primary browser, I can't use firefox extensions or IE toolbars.

Do I make sense?
