If you find installing extensions slows everything down, but you still want the benefits of plugins like Ubiquity, Quix offers an intriguing compromise – a bookmark that acts as a launcher. To install, all you need to do is drag a single shortcut to your toolbar. When you click this shortcut, a window will pop up in your browser.
In this window you can type various commands. For example, if you wanted to do a Google search for Justin Pot – and who wouldn’t? – you’d simply type “g Justin Pot” and hit “OK.”
Google’s not the only site this tool can use, either””to search MakeUseOf all you need to do is open any page on MakeUseOf, then click “Quix” and type “gs” followed by your search term. It sounds complicated, but it’s really not once you get used to it. If you can’t remember which commands do what, just type “help” to bring up a handy list.
