OmniWeb, Launchbar
Authored by: russh on Apr 18, '02 02:50:37PM
Just by way of information OmniWeb has the same feature. In fact, a Google keyword is built in: Just type "google [search phrase] [RETURN]". You can, of course, change the keyword to "g" or "?" or whatever you prefer.

As a LaunchBar user, this concept is old hat. I open Apps, documents, favorite web sites, etc all from the keyboard. To get to this site I hit "[CTRL-SPACE]hin[RETURN]"

The beauty part, I didn't have to set up anything special (other than bookmarking Mac OS X Hints) to make that happen. LaunchBar is very intelligent and remembers your preferences.

If you haven't tried LaunchBar, give it a spin from Versiontracker. In my view, it's the Finderpop of OS X... truly changes the way you interact with your Mac.

OmniWeb: Add keyword shortcuts
Authored by: tinb on Apr 19, '02 02:26:09AM

To add your own keyword shortcuts to OmniWeb, open Preferences, choose Shortcuts and add lines similar to these (first Shortcut, then Destination URL):

?@ http://www.google.com/search?q=%@
vers@ http://www.versiontracker.com/mp/new_search.m?productDB=mac&mode=Quick&OS_Filter=MacOSX&search=%@

The examples works then as '? macosxhints' or 'vers OmniWeb'. Don't include the "'"!

CU, Robert

I tried the above omniweb shortcut for searching version tracker in Mozilla and it doesn't work. Anyone able to make a functioning VersionTracker OSX search shortcut for mozilla?
