navigate to those... out of the box with firefox

Ok well, this doesn’ seem to be new at all, but nevertheless I missed that. Firefox has the great functionality to assign shortcuts to certain bookmarks and supply a parameter to the URL. This leads to really great quick searches (aka. the art of bookmarking).

What I have now are shortcuts to all my often used search sites. To search in wikipedia e.g. I type CTRL + L (shortcut for placing the cursor in the URL bar in firefox), then type wp asdf and there I go.

I guess this fact renders my previously posted quick link access tool obsolete…
