But another thing, does the lookup in "block explorer" search in oldest first order or most recent first order. Because if the latter it seems someone could gen a new address that matches your address prefix and use it to get it in the chain. If it searches and finds the match more recent it would find that one as the single match. But you thought of that I'm sure...

It starts with the earliest so a new address that matches does not change any previous address' firstbits.

I was going to say - what this really needs is a Firefox Search plugin that makes it so the web site doesn't need to be there, or get hammered, it just goes to the block chain.

But then I remembered my "Add To Search Bar" add-on and tried that. Sure enough one -right-click and FirstBits is now a search entry on the Firefox Search Bar. I can drop an address in there and it does the magic.
 

How does this work exactly? Your search bar now knows to convert an address to it's firstbits? Or it assumes the firstbits.com/ and takes you to the page?

I guess this "Add To Search Bar" plugin takes the actual url of the form action and adds that as an url in the search bar. It doesn't show me the url though - it's embedded in the search bar.

Here's the home page for the add-on
https://firefox.maltekraus.de/extensions/add-to-search-bar

I just see a form field and right click on it to turn it into a search bar item.

In opera you can just make a new search with the url http://www.firstbits.com/?a=%s and whatever keyword you want. So for example typing "b 1kk5k" would take you to http://www.firstbits.com/?a=1kk5k.

And a bash function for the geeks out there:

Code:
function fb() {
    wget -qO- http://www.firstbits.com/api/?a=$1 |tr -d ' '
    #curl -so- http://www.firstbits.com/api/?a=$1 |tr -d ' '
    echo
}

Code:
$ fb 12345

$ fb 1mtgox

Firstbits seems to be down for maintenance right now. No problem with that, but /api/?a=foo still works Wink. /api/foo and /foo don't.

Two addresses of mine, which have already 7 confirmations, still don't appear in the chain according to firstbits. Maybe the bitcoin instance running there was offline during the downtime period and isn't up to date?

Edit: It's working. Seems I needed to post something here Smiley.

It might take 6 confirms plus a few minutes. Let me know if it takes longer.

If the check-sum ever happens I just want to give idea out. It could be the first character in firstbit address. So it can't mess up the later addresses. Not sure how it should be calculated, but it is logical solution if checksum is needed.

Shortening a hash, especially a Bitcoin address is just asking for trouble.

If you found my comment useful please express your gratitude by doing an action of similar magnitude towards a better society. Thanks you!.
