    similarly to a feature in IE7Pro plugin. the ability to alias a letter to two
    to a search query with a base url and query string is powerful. For example
    if I wanted to reate a live search alias, I'd make it l that points to
    something like "http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=%s" where %s is
    somethingyou type after l in the address bar. in the address bar from now on,
    i would be able to type "l ie8" and it'll run
    http://search.live.com/results.aspx?q=ie8

    in firefox, this is similarly done with the keyword feature in their
    bookmarks. and using a variable such as %s as I used above.
