Fancy hidden Firefox feature

21.01.2007 22:27

I've just heard about a well hidden and very useful feature in Firefox from FLOSS Weekly podcast's interview with Ben Goodger. If you right-click on a search field on some website you can add a shortcut to your address bar that makes searching a lot faster.

For example, if you make a lot of searches on tablix.org, you can do something like this: right click on the text entry and select "Add a keyword". Then type a keyword (like "tablix" for example) in the dialog window that pops up.

Talk about easily discoverable user interfaces

You can now search Tablix documentation simply by typing "tablix" and some search terms separated by spaces in the address bar of your Firefox.
