One of the features of Netscape (and later Mozilla) that I missed in Safari were bookmark keywords. I had a bunch of custom bookmarks with keywords so I could type ‘i King Kong’ into the address bar and Netscape would search IMDB for the phrase “King Kong”. I hacked the binary for Safari so instead of it’s google search bar searching google by default, It instead accessed a CGI I had on localhost that would replicate this functionality (and search google if I didn’t provide any keywords). But out of habit I would type the keywords into the address bar instead of the search bar half the time, and hacking the binary always felt so dirty.

Enter Sogudi, a plugin for Safari that provides exactly what I was looking for in a much less dirty way. Definitely check it out if you use Safari on a regular basis.
