Pentadactyl: "I'm Feeling Lucky" searches

What?

Perform "I'm Feeling Lucky" Google searches in the current tab or in a new tab with s or S, respectively.

Why?

By default, s and S for Google searches are redundant, since set defsearch=google allows Google searches with o and t.

How? (Linux instructions)

1) Save to ~/.mozilla/firefox/YOURPROFILE.default/searchplugins/google-ssl.xml

https://gist.github.com/w0ng/5474859

2) Set the keyword for the search engine

Open Firefox.

:set guioptions+=T

Search bar icon --> Manage Search Engines.

I'm Feeling Lucky (SSL) --> Edit Keyword --> s --> OK

3) Edit ~/.pentadactylrc

nmap -builtin s :open s<Space>

nmap -builtin S :tabopen s<Space>

4) Restart Firefox.

Great tip!

You can get to the 'Manage Search Engines' page faster (and without adding GUI elements) with:

:dialog searchengines
