i try to minimize my key bindings that's why i use a bmark script (evoked by
dmenu again) like that:

switch(`{echo -e search\nload\nstore | dmenu}){
case store
    xprop _SURF_URL | sed 's/.*= "//;s/"//' >> /home/hiro/bmarks
case load
    xprop -f _SURF_URL 8t -set _SURF_URL `{cat /home/hiro/bmarks | dmenu_vrtc -l 20}
case search
    query=`{echo | dmenu}
    xprop -f _SURF_URL 8t -set _SURF_URL ''^$"query

i don't use the xid because i dont know how to do it, how do you guys do it?
how do you start surf (script?), do you have only one surf instance? what do
i miss here?
