I don\'t know about the terminal. Looks like a great hint. But with real browsers, like
Mozilla, no script is needed at all, and you can search Google directly from the URL line.

Just add:

user_pref(\"keyword.URL\",\"http://www.google.com/search?q=\");

to your user.js prefs file.

Type your search, and Mozilla kindly takes you to Google, with plenty of great answers waiting for you!

You don't even have to add that. It's already built in. Just set Google as the default search engine (Prefs/Navigator/Internet Search), then type your query in the address field and press the down arrow to highlight "Search Google for "(your text string)"" and hit Enter!
