URL shortcuts in Chromium

If you like the Firefox feature to create special bookmarks that are actual templates for specific urls, well, here's how I got the same for Chromium.

That's actually how WordReference is suggesting, so it's defining new search engines: right click on the URL bar, Edit seach engine, and then Add; now you can define what you like, f.e. :


and so now typing "pts package" in the URL bar you'll get to the package PTS page.

That's one of the core points I had to get fixed in order to migrate from FF to chromium, one step closer then.

That's a Konqueror feature. Has been for ten years or more.

@Richard: ok, thanks, but does it matter if it's in Konqueror for ten years? if you're happy with it, just use it :) I'm happy Chromium has the very same feature, so I can use it

Of course. The main thing is that you are able to use your browser in the way you want.

Still, I think it's worth updating the article with a short note.

Community thrives on attribution and it's one of the core principles in Debian. It's pity that you disagree as your blog is aggregated via Planet Debian.

@Richard: are you out of your mind? should I cite all the browsers that have the same feature I mentioned? just go away

oh, and what do you know of the "principles of Debian"? could you point me where "attribution" is mentioned?

Bah, you probably didn't even deserve a reply, for sure I won't waste more time with you.
