When I was younger, I heard about AOL keywords, and wondered why other ISPs didn't use them. When I tried typing in a phrase instead of website, it took me to a search engine. Flash ahead, and I was being lazy at school and typed in "Wiki French and Indian War" assuming it would take me to Google and give Wikipedia's page as the top result. Instead it took me straight to the page in Wikipedia. This surprised me and I tried it at home with mixed results. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I know IE can do such things if set up, so I'd like to know how to make it so that I can type in "wiki ____" and have it automatically take me to the Wikipedia page. Is this a TweakUI thing?
