 Mac OS X Power Hound Helpful Hints, Part 2

"An Internet shortcut is a short name that you assign to any web site. When you type the short name into the address bar and press Enter, your browser loads the full URL for you. So instead of typing "www.nytimes.com" or mousing into your News -> World -> Current folder, you could just type "nyt" and press Enter to call up the New York Times site. Shortcuts (also known as keywords) are supported in every Mac OS X browser except for Safari, iCab, and Internet Explorer."
