More About Custom Search Engine

# Description:
-----------------
This add-on allows users to define their own custom search engines and use it from address bar of the browser. You can save the custom engine details to a file and also load it from there. It allows easy sharing of custom defined engines too.

You now can also search using multiple search engines in one go. To use multi-search feature type "ms key1,key2,key3 ".

Summary of Features:
* Search using single search engine (use search key as 'key1')
* Search using multiple search engine (use search key as 'key1,key2')
* Search using single search category (use search key as '@cat1'
* Search using multiple search category (use search key as '@cat1,cat2')
* Search using all search engines (use search key as '@')
* Search using search engines with empty category (use search key as '@@')


New feature added to search based on search engine category. Search engine category should be defined in the preferences page.

To search based in category please type "ms @ ".

If you want to search using all search engines then simply use "ms @ ".

It allows users to use multiple search tags ("{searchTerms}" or "{searchTerms[0]" etc) to define a search engine url.

E.g. Following are a valid custom search engine urls -
* https://www.google.co.in/search?q={searchTerms}
To use above - "ms google convert CST time to PST"
* https://www.google.co.in/search?q=convert+{searchTerms[0]}+time+to+{searchTerms[1]}
To use above - "ms google CST PST"

Few other examples:
* ms @food,restaurant pasta
This will start search for text 'pasta' with search engines under category 'food' and also with search engines under category 'restaurant'.
* ms @ pasta
This will start search for text 'pasta' with all the search engines defined under preferences.
* ms @@ pasta
This will start search for text 'pasta' with all search engines with empty category.
