Keyboard Shortcuts (ei Command+1 etc.) for Search Shortcuts
[FONT="Georgia"][SIZE="2"]Hello, my first post :D

What I'd love to see and I think would benefit most OmniWeb users is [I][B]Keyboard Shortcuts for Search Shortcuts![/B][/I]

A feature that, at least for me, will make this THE Safari replacer is a feature found in a Safari only plug in named [B]AcidSearch[/B]. I really dig that with that add on one can assign searches much like OmniWeb but can assign KEYBOARD shortcuts!

So then, say I want to search Google and the Search Shortcut field says "[COLOR="DimGray"]eBay[/COLOR]", I would then just hit for instance [COLOR="Blue"]Command-F1[/COLOR] and bam, the field automatically changes to "[COLOR="DimGray"]Google[/COLOR]" and my cursor is ready to type at the Shortcut Search field and hit enter with my search term.

And then I'd hit say, [COLOR="Blue"]Command+F2[/COLOR] to search a custom search I saved before like for instance, [COLOR="DimGray"]Gracenote[/COLOR] to search albums or Amazon searches, etc.

Hope you consider, I love OmniWeb. Its the best. Thanks for your hard work!

You can already do something similar to this with shortcuts. For example, one can hit command+L, then type [i]google[/i] followed by a search term and have it search via google. You can then customize your own and add many more options.

[FONT="Trebuchet MS"][SIZE="2"]Hmm, I see, yes...let me play around with that some more. I hope I dont sound lazy but having to type google or say gracenote or wikipedia everytime may be a small hassle, but I'll do some testing.

Thanks for the tip!:) [/SIZE][/FONT]

well, I've got google image set to "gi". you could always set the keywords to number, like 1, 2... then you'd just hit command+L, 1, space and type. Almost as short.

You're right, that is a trick to make it faster...I did think of maybe doing that. Thanks for your time and tips, much appreciated!

Also, command-1 etc go to your favorites bookmarks (ignoring folders).
