Search sites via Google and Terminal

It's also much easier if you provide an argument to the script, so that you can perform this much faster and easier (especially if you put this script in one of your PATH's).

#!/bin/sh

if [ $# = 0 ]
then
  echo " "
  echo "Please provide search string. Usage: $0 [string]"
  echo " "
else
  F=`echo $@ | sed 's/ /+/g' | sed 's/"/%22/g'`
  open "http://google.com/search?q=$F"
fi
