#firefox tip: use Keywords to search directly from URL bar
i got tired of accessing thesaurus dot com through a search engine. so i made it easier:
the URL for the word "increase" looked like this:
make a bookmark. open FF's "Library" / bookmark manager (ctrl-shift-b on windows). find the bookmark. replace the search term ("increase") with %s and add a Keyword ("thes" in my case)
now in URL bar, i can type "thes" followed by any word to arrive at the relevant thesaurus page.
@gatewave I do the same thing! t for thesaurus, d for dictionary, w for wikipedia, yt for youtube. Lowest possible barrier to entry for looking things up has made it a lot easier to maintain the illusion that I know a thing or two
@matt cool! yeah, it's super useful. sometimes i have to do something a bunch of times in a row before i think "oh, maybe i should automate this"
i use y for youtube. no offense pal but that's twice as efficient as yt :O
