Quick Aliases For Common Searches In Firefox

Often I end up doing searches on a specfic site using google alot. For instance, the api for rubyonrails documentation.
Instead of using my previous tip *each* time  http://www.bigbold.com/snippets/posts/show/1325 :


site:api.rubyonrails.com submit_tag
 

I made a keyword bookmark inside firefox. 
Basically, create a new bookmark in firefox and make the url 


http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=site%3Aapi.rubyonrails.com+%s


Give this a short name like api or ror
then in your search bar you can type 
api submit_tag and watch the results float in.

Other useful searches i've found are,

the Ruby on Rails mailling list:


http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fwrath.rubyonrails.org%2Fpipermail%2Frails%2F+%s


The PostgreSQL 8.1 Documentation:


http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.postgresql.org%2Fdocs%2F8.1%2Finteractive%2F+%s
