There’s a sweet little desktop app for OSX called Huevos.

It’s tiny and free, and it’s a search helper. You pick a search site, type in your search, and your browser of choice fires up and searches. I recommend it!

You can drop in your own searches, so I took out the ones I didn’t need and put in somei new ones. In case anyone is interested, my new ones were:

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s?index=blended&field-keywords=%@

Blinkx: http://www.blinkx.com/videos/%@

Google Video: http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=%@&sitesearch=

IMDB: http://imdb.com/find?s=all&q=%@&x=0&y=0

Powells: http://www.powells.com/s?kw=%@&x=0&y=0

  1. Does this do something more/different than Firefox’s built-in Quick Searches? I have a few set up so that I can cmd-tab to Firefox, cmd-l to the URL bar, then type stuff like “g searchterms” for Google, “i searchterms” for Google images, “ama searchterms” for Amazon, “dict searchterm” for dictionary.com, “thes searchterm” for thesaurus.com, etc.
