One thing I noticed is that some of the search engines are the UK versions. No problem--you can change them or add to them.

That's what I figured.<g> We live all over the world, so whatever version we get will be "foreign" to someone else. Anyway, I learned a little about managing search engines.

It's working well for me as well.  The bug with the bookmarks in 3.5 (upstream, not VL) is definitely fixed in 3.5.1.  Thanks for packaging this!
