    Are you saying that there is a need for an information seeking, exploration, retrieval, and aggregation interface that goes beyond a glaringly empty white page, colorful playschool letters and a single, one-line text box?

    Please, do elaborate.

    Couldn’t agree more. This really blew me away and yet it seems so obvious.

    Thanks for pointing this out. I love the concept.

    By the way, why didn’t you twitter this? Seems like the perfect use for a tweet?

    Feel free to reply @ericholter.

    Another *GREAT* example of the “Wisdom of the Language” at work! :D

    I wonder how many users have changed the default Location bar search provider in their mozilla firefox browser configuration (see support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Location+bar+search for details)

    Just like the “sevices” aka “websites” in the video, you could more easily navigate directly to the desired keyword / service by typing in 1 word into the empty location bar today (if you have browse.name name configured as your Location bar search provider).

    Simply set the prefix to:

    http://www.browse.name/direct.php?query=

    and delete the suffix.

    Piece of cake! It’s all there — today. It was probably there yesterday. I don’t know how long it’s been there — 1 year? 2 years? …?

    How many people have used it?

    I’ve been using it for the last few days and it’s amazing!
    The main use I’m giving is as an enhanced Google suggest/preview.
