The purpose of this project is to provide a form where you can type the things you want to do, instead of clicking with the mouse. Some people have wrist problems from too much mouse use, and some people don't like to take their hands off the keyboard.
This form lets you quickly search sites such as Amazon, Bing, CSS Validator, Ebay, Fedex Tracking, Fry's, Google Maps, HTML Validator, jQuery Documentation, Dictionaries, Mozilla Development Center, PHP Documentation, Thesaurus, Tiger Direct, Microsoft Translator, UPS and USPS Tracking, Whois, Wikipedia, and Wordpress Documentation. Enter a two- or three-letter site abbreviation, then your search terms, and let it go. I've been using this form as my home page for years, and I can find anything quickly.
The script also draws the search widget for you. You can style the widget any way you wish using CSS.
Here is how to use this on your own page.
<style type="text/css"> @import "mixcommand.css"; <style>(You can also reference your other styles and stylesheets here.)
Example. Note the %s reference in the URL:
[ "Mozilla Dev Center", "https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/search?q=%s" ],
"moz Mozilla https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/",
You use the widget by entering a site abbreviation, then optional search terms. If you don't enter search terms, the script looks in your list of abbreviations. If it doesn't find a match, it will look through any other links on your page.
For example, if you enter moz in the box above, the page will be redirected to the Mozilla Developer Network home page.
If you enter search terms, the script looks in your list of searches instead. It matches the first term to a site, and the rest of them it it plugs into the search query.
For example, if you enter moz onload in the box above, the page will search the Mozilla site for the search term onload.
Here are bunch of links. Try typing the first few letters of each site name into the box.
