I don't care who makes it, I don't care if I even get credit, I would just like to see someone make a Firefox extension of which would make a search bar where you can search IP Addresses frmo http://www.arin.net/whois/ and open the results in a new tab.

What the extension allows you to do is a IP whois search on any IP. Let's say you wanted to know what everyone can find out about you, so you decide to 'whois' your IP. Just simply enter you IP addreses into the little search box in Firefox and there you go.
