In Firefox's addressbar, you can limit results by typing special characters before or after your term
^ for matches in your browsing history.
* for matches in your bookmarks.
% for matches in your currently open tabs.
# for matches in page titles.
@ for matches in web addresses.
@kurisu I have beeen there too. so my hands just learnt ctrl-k without me looking and am not so google fan though I actively have email and Keep. Firefox isn't a preference as much as just trying to support it and hoping it gets better. in some ways it has. in some ways it hasn't become creepy.
@kurisu i dunno if you are into programming but that uses a bunch of periods as well. like you want to search os.system and not land up on a website called os.system, right?
A quick experiment tells me I can prepend strings with '.' in them with @ sign and it would send the string to your favorite search engine rather than treat it as an URL. Haa! No need to move to chrome for me! :P :D
