Chapter 4. Searching the Web > Using Smart Keywords

Using Smart Keywords

As you’ve seen already, Firefox offers more search options and features than most other browsers, but there’s still more to go. You can use Smart Keywords to search directly from the address field rather than selecting the search engine you prefer in the search toolbar and then entering your search criteria.

To use Firefox’s Smart Keywords, type one of the predefined keywords, such as “google,” into the address field, followed by the thing you’re searching for. (An example of looking up “five-string banjo” in Google appears in Figure 4-8.) Press Enter, and Firefox looks for your search item as if you’d gone to Google.com and entered the search phrase directly.
