    i don't use quicksearch, but i can imagine annoyance of typing in long names if ue many quicksearches, and/or having
    typos become "real words"


    seems to avoid that, could use unusual chars in the keyword. eg, keyword for google groups could be:
    $gg instead of gg
    keyword for google web could be:
    w$g

    could associate certain symb char with certain topics of sites, eg ^ for compute-related:
    ^mzn for mozillazine search keyword
    ^msn for micra$oft
