Here's a test of an official one. Once I get some feedback I'll add a better install page and enable auto-discovery.

I've added it to the official Mozilla repository as well: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/54905/

Both https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/54905 and http://www.linuxquestions.org/lq-osd.html have been updated to the latest version. As this is an OpenSearch file, I believe Chrome and possibly IE7+ should also be able to use it.

Also note, as of today if you click the icon in the search engine box in Firefox you should see "Add LinuxQuestions.org" near the bottom.

It looks like Seamonkey will eventually support OpenSearch.
