Anybody using Google Chrome as browser to access IBM Connections? Then you might want to download QuickSearch for IBM Connections from the Chrome webstore:
The IBM Connections QuickSearch plugin let you quickly search for users or content within IBM Connections, share a File to multiple users in one click, share an URL to your board or someone's board, and update your profile picture using your webcam or an existing picture.
Use the pop-up window in the upper right corner of chrome in order to search within Profiles (with type-ahead feature), Files, Forums and so on.
You can also use it directly from the URL navigation bar, by typing "ic" (without any quotes) following by a space then your query. Then press enter for a global search or arrow keys to reduce the scope.
