I’ve written a tool that allows to define commonly used URLs for repeated access, varying only by a defined parameter-part. When you call one of those URLs, you just need to pass a parameter and it opens in the browser. That way you get quick access to often used URLs, e.g. your preferred search engine, your ticketing system or whatever. For even faster access the URLs are bound to predefined global hotkeys.
