Shelfari: Book reviews on your book blog

I've been an addict of Launchy since long. Up until now, when I wanted to lookup a mail I know I have, I would do the following:

  • hit WIN-SPACE (launchy)
  • type "gmail"
  • hit ENTER.

This causes firefox to open on the gmail inbox. When I arrive there, I would

  • type a search query into the search box

I can now browse the results.


Thanks to Launchy, I can reduce these steps to these:

  • hit WIN-SPACE (launchy)
  • type "gmail"
  • hit TAB
  • type my search query (into launchy)


This is done with the extensions built into launchy. You have to define the "gmail" shortcut in weby as follows:

Name: gmail


Query: #search/%s

Et voilà.
