Search the codex right from your admin bar

A little search dropdown box is added to your admin bar with this code snippet. Enter a search term and it directly sends you to the codex search results pages. If you develop plugins and themes this might be a nice time saver. The searchbox currently does not blend perfectly into the css admin setup so if anyone knows the correct css classes please leave a comment.
