Since Lucas has published his list of search engine shortcuts, I'll do that too. Maybe someone finds a useful addition for himself. I'm leaving out those that are predefined by Galeon and not used by me.

Hey Joachim,

I think you explain why v6o is not sucessfull :-)
#2 Joachim Breitner (Homepage) am 2006-08-21
ahm... v60?
#3 Lucas (Homepage) am 2006-08-23
Yes, v6o as in "long weird word that starts with v, ends with o and has 6 letters in between". Like s9y, l10n, i18n...
#4 Joachim Breitner (Homepage) am 2006-08-23
Well,... okay!

But why should I explain?
#5 Lucas (Homepage) am 2006-08-23
No, you explain it by telling me about how I got the name wrong: The name is just not as easy to remember as google...
