    I just bought a used digitech bp200 effect pedal, which I am in love with. Only one problem: I have no manual. So, as i do with all my problems, I asked google. But instead of actually going to google.com, I typed my query in the address bar.

    digitech bp200 manual

    It downloaded it immediately and opened it up in Adobe Reader.

    I was expecting hours of searching only to end up not finding the thing! Maybe I'm just overly pleased...

    So google found what you were looking for... But props go to firefox? :D

    I think all it is is google "I am feeling lucky..."

    Agreed though, cool feature...
     
  3. It can search from the address bar??

    Holy .... I'll have to try that next time.

    I was aware of this, but... well damn you're right. I should give the credit to google for finding the right file for me, and firefox for being smart enough to know when to use the i'm feeling lucky and when not to.

    I just tried something random "green tea" and it just took me to googles search page with all the answers
     
  9. You might also enjoy adding custom searches to the address bar, if you haven't found this feature already...

    For example:
    - open the talkbass search forums menu
    - right click on the text entry field and select "add keyword for this search"
    - in the "keyword" field enter tb
    Now you can search the talkbass forums directly from the address bar by entering: tb yourSearchTerm
