Open Wikipedia Topic from Script Menu
Authored by: mbd on May 30, '07 05:51:01PM
Just to offer yet another way to skin this cat, I use either 'Sogudi' or 'SIA' with Safari (i've used both depending on which machine I'm on and they both do the same thing), which allows you to add keywords to the address bar of the browser. Doing a google or versiontracker search ought to point you to their respective homepages.

So, when I want to look something up, I open a new browser window, and enter

wikip search string

They also let you create customised searches, so if you want to search sites that include the keyword as part of the URL you can. I use it to do fast lookups of our intranet's directory of employees.

Also note that Firefox has this kind of functionality built in and call it 'Quick Searches' - you can see how they work and make your own by looking at the Quick Search section of the 'Organise Bookmarks' menu option
