Another easy way with QuickSearches
Authored by: janpeeters on Jan 16, '07 09:52:31AM

The plugin gives you an easy way to search this site. I myself prefer to use QuickSearches. It's a way to easily create a search shortcut for almost any website.

Creating a QuickSearch works like this:
- CTRL-click on the (in this specific case) MacOSXHints searchformfield
- Choose "add a keyword for this search"
- A window pops up. Define a name and shortcut for your search. I chose 'xh' for MacOSXHints, define where you want to store your QuickSearch and hit enter.

From now on you can do a search like this:
type the keyword 'xh' in the locationbar followed by a space and type the word or phrase you're searching for, hit enter and you're set.

As said this works on almost any website, better said… I've not found a website on which it doesn't work but your mileage may vary.
