Creating Firefox Search Shortcuts

This is a neat trick, I've seen Rohit Pai using all the time... Purpose is to create a shortcut that will let you search for keywords (in our example "hindistan" "blog") using a search engine (in our example, google). Steps are simple:

  • In Firefox, go to the web site that offers search
  • Right click in the *search box*, where you would normally put your keywords
  • Choose "Add a Keyword for this Search..."
  • Give it any name
  • Type the shortcut you would like to use (in our example g)
  • Click OK.
Now in the address bar you can use type your new shortcut and the keywords as shown above...
