Mozilla goes one better. Any bookmark can have a keyword associated with
it. Not only that, but anything which follows the keyword will be
substituted for "%s" in the bookmark's URL. So, for example, I have a
Mozilla bookmark http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=%s, and a
keyword "bug". When I type "bug 50994", I am magically transported to the
Repeat the same procedure for "freshmeat ssh", "weather san francisco,
ca", "quote YHOO", etc.
It is a very handy feature.
