Type ahead find; Mozilla keywords
Authored by: jacobolus on May 26, '05 04:14:04PM
The day Safari gets type-ahead find and Mozilla keywords will be the day I switch from my beloved (but occasionally buggy) Camino nightly builds. Type ahead find, something that the incremental search fans at apple should be all over, makes finding info via a search engine much quicker, because i no longer need to scroll through long documents to find what I'm looking for. I can just start typing it. Mozilla keywords have totally changed the way I use bookmarks and the web. When google search is only a "g my query" away, or when wikipedia is only a "wp interesting article" away, I find myself using them much more. And Camino is so much better written for the Mac platform than Firefox. None of those silly windows button widgets!

Type ahead find; Mozilla keywords

Maybe I am old-fashioned but by simply clicking on the browser icon in the Dock (be it Mozilla, Firefox, Camino or Safari) or hitting command-T if the browser is already the active application, I get the Google page and can start to type my search without having to do anything else.

The keyword thing sounds interesting nevertheless. Is it an extension to Mozilla? I cannot seem to find it.

Keywords have been around forever. And now setting them is even easier with Smart Keywords:

I liked Mozilla keywords, but I prefer using Quicksilver's web search plugin for that functionality. I'm sure the other launchers (LaunchBar and Butler) do something similar.

The nice thing is, Quicksilver picks up any mozilla keyword searches I have in my Camino bookmarks, and I can then use them from Quicksilver as well. I have the QS Web Search catalog items disabled, because there are too many of them, and none I'd ever use that I can't just as easily add to Camino.
