Instructions

Omnikey comes bundled with some major sites, to see the complete list click in the Omnikey icon in the toolbar.

Every site has a key/url pair, if you set am as the key for the Amazon search searching for am ipod touch will search for "ipod touch" on Amazon's website.

Add sites by clicking in the Add Site button on the extension's popup window. Omnikey will populate the URL field with the current window url, replace the query part of the URL with {search} which will act as a wildcard that will be replaced when performing searches.
