[TIPS] - browser shortcuts

In IE:
So you wanna find a definition of a word - say, *moodle. How do YOU find the definition? Do you rush off to Merriam Webster's site (http://www.m-w.com) and search from there? I'll save you some time: For a definition of a word just type - define moodle - in the address field.
 
Another way to search for something, say, penguins, is to simply type: ? penguins in the address field - right over top of the address that's there. Presto - your default search engine pops up with the search results.
 
For Firefox:
In the address field type: google moodle - and hit enter. Google appears with the search results.
To find a definition of the word, in the address bar type: dict moodle
To do a wikipedia search, type: wp moodle and hit enter and up comes Wikipedia with the search result.
To get a stock quote, type: quote GOOG and up comes the latest stock quote from Yahoo Finance area.

And speaking of Moodle, don't forget the training sessions scheduled for March 1, 8, 14, and April 11. Choose one and sign up via 48 CARATS. I need 6 per class to hold the session)
