Firefox search engine for InterSystems documentation

If you're using Firefox, you probably know that there are search engine addons that allow us to use website search directly. Now, docs.intersystems.com is also available as a search engine here. Here's how it looks:

And after clicking on InterSystems search engine you're redirected to the docs.intersystems.com:

Would be much better, if InterSystems will add OpenSearch to their documentation. And I think it will be enough only for the public version. And in this case, it will be supported in all modern browsers, without installation anything external.

Something like this.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<OpenSearchDescription xmlns="http://a9.com/-/spec/opensearch/1.1/">
 <ShortName>InterSystems docs latest</ShortName>
 <Description>InterSystems Ensemble Documentation latest Version</Description>
 <Url type="text/html" method="get" template="https://docs.intersystems.com/latest/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.SearchPageZen.cls?KEY=&KeyWord={searchTerms}"/>
</OpenSearchDescription>

Well, that's actually exactly what this plugin is.
