Firefox Keywords

Firefox has a great feature that allows you to turn any searchable website into a 'keyword.' How does this make your life easier? Well, say you want to search for a term on Wikipedia. You would type in 'www.wikipedia.org,' find the search box, type the term in (say, 'Tabes dorsalis'), and then hit enter. That's not a lot of work, but it does waste some time. Instead, with a keyword, you simply go to the location bar, type:

wp tabes dorsalis


and that's it! The keyword 'wp' is pre-programmed in to Firefox for Wikipedia, so it instantly knows to search Wikipediea for that term. More to come on how you can unlock the power of keywords.
