Sorry, sent from wrong address! Maybe this appears twice.

Hi, this happens to be my first mail to this list.
I don't think this needs to be a part of the browser, why not use an
external program? Currently I'm using surfraw (it's an acronym!).

I access these search-engine-shortcuts, and also browser-history and bookmarks,
with dmenu and keybindings in dwm. I think this is more convenient,
because I don't need to start surf before using them
and I always get new windows. /Kalle
