Google Search with Text Commands


What it does?

Gives you an option to search images, videos, youtube and wikipedia right from google homepage WITHOUT any additional clicks

Format of various queries:

Search Type
Prefix/Command
Example
Destination Domain
Normal Search
Nothing
Hello
google.com
Image Search
;i
;i Hello
images.google.com
Video Search
;v
;v Hello
videos.google.com
Youtube Search
;y
;y Hello
youtube.com
Wikipedia Search
;w
;w Hello
wikipedia.org


How does it work?

It redirects the page to mentioned locations after appending queries if the query text is preceded by ;i or ;v or ;w or ;y

How to Install it?

Step 0: Install Greasemonkey (It's a Firefox Addon)
Step 1: Install My Script


I hope it will help. If you think there are more options that are needed for faster searches, do leave a message.


Search Tip

Well, we all search for definitions now and then. What we do is we go to answers.com or wikipedia or i-am-too-lazy-to-list-them-all.
Easy way:
Google this 
define:WHATEVER_YOU_WANT



P.S.: Greasemonkey is awesome
