Sogudi for searching via Safari's location bar
Merlin Mann | Sep 6 2004
Sogudi is a plug-in for Safari that lets you search your favorite sites from the location bar. This means that instead of having to visit a given site, you can just type a keyword into the location bar, pop in your search terms, and jump immediately to the results.
Hint: If you're going to be following along on our Quicksilver series, I recommend installing Sogudi and acquainting yourself with it; we'll be using it a lot.

Additionally, here are a few of my homespun shortcuts you’re free to repurpose. (Format: Site/Sogudi Abbreviation/Sogudi URL)

Nerdy Note: This type of functionality is not unique to Safari at all—it’s been available on Mac and non-Mac Mozilla browsers (among others) for a while now. By the same token a similar functionality is available in Quicksilver itself. Still, I do think it’s worth installing and using Sogudi especially since it integrates seamlessly with Quicksilver. Meaning, in a roundabout way, that Sogudi + Quicksilver + Non-Safari Browser + target app configuration tweak makes Sogudi operate flawlessly with any OSX browser. Make sense? One tool to rule them all.
