As a Firefox user, you are probably familiar with Greasemonkey, a nifty extension that allows you to tweak Web pages to add all kinds of interesting features using scripts. One such handy script is Google Search Sidebar which adds a sidebar to the Google search page containing search results from YouTube, Wikipedia, Dictionary.com, and Flickr.

Obviously, the script requires the Greasemonkey extension, so you have to install it before you proceed. Once you've done that, navigate to the script's Web page and press the Install button. That's it. Do a search directly from the Google search page or using the search bar in Firefox, and you should see results from YouTube, Wikipedia, Dictionary.com, and Flickr in the sidebar to the right.
