web shortcuts

So I've gotten used to konqueror's google web shortcut. I realized that I could add others as well...

Now I can type "oed:cyborg" and get the oxford english dictionary's definition. Well at least as long as I have a caltech IP address.

I can also look stuff up in the merriam-webster dictionary using dict:word

Strangely this shortcut feature is increadibly useful, almost rendering some searches transparent.
