The search engine DuckDuckGo has a thing called bangs, where you can type an exclamation mark followed by a short code of numbers/letters, and then the search typed beside it goes directly to the website for that code. Some music websites are integrated, eg.:

!rym for RateYourMusic:!rym%20bandtoband
!discogs for Discogs:!discogs%20bandtoband
!mb for MusicBrainz:!mb%20anthrax
!mab for Encyclopaedia Metallum:!mab%20anthrax

The code !b2b isn't taken yet so it'd be great to try and get it. Problem is the BandToBand search doesn't yet work with a query string. Would it be possible to get something like the following working, even if just for the specific purpose?

Speaking of search, it would be great to have the Firefox search-engine extension working again. (I can't find the old forum posts about that.)
