A Couple Firefox Search Shortcuts

Firefox has an embedded search box in the upper right corner. By default, it searches Google, and I for one am happy with that. But, hit the little arrow and you can access or add other search engines. But, here are a couple quick little tips for using search directly from Firefox:

(1) Want to do a quick calculation? Just enter it into the search box and hit Enter and you will get an answer from Google. For example, enter “6*5″ into the search and hit Enter, and you will get an answer from Google of 30.

(2) When surfing the internet, you can search using any word on a webpage. Simply highlight any word or phrase on a website, right-click on it and hit “Search for xxxx”, where xxxx is the highlighted phrase. You will immediately get search results in a new tab.
