Bookmarklets and Keyword Bookmarks

Bookmark shortcuts which allows you to get to sites quickly.
Bookmarklet: a javascript bookmark.
Keyword Bookmark: a way of quickly accessing a bookmark (perhaps with arguments) from the urlbar.

One initial tip: turning on "Internet keyword search" means you don't need a bookmark or separate toolbar entry for google; just type a phrase into the urlbar and if it has more than two words, Mozilla automatically redirects to your chosen search engine.  If you want to search with a single word, preface it with a space.

You don't have to use Netscape as your search engine for Internet Keywords.  Add this pref:
user_pref("keyword.URL", "");
to your user.js (or the equivalent for your favorite search engine).
