What is Big Search?

Big Search is an Edge Add-On that allows you to conveniently send search requests to Github, MDN, and other searchable websites. It offers a customizable and open-source solution, with support for single-line or multi-line input. The tool ensures safety and privacy by minimizing default permissions, functioning purely on the client-side, and hiding HTTP Referrer by default. With Big Search, you can easily search repositories, users, code, and more.
