Shortcuts and super shortcuts.

Asked by Emre Can

Hello guys, first of all , if this alreay exist, please forgive me im new at linux and synapse.

ok first let me tell you how i use my browsers. i use keywords for all my favorite sites such as youtube google etc..

my youtube keyword is "y" so when i need to search for instance metallica sad but true, i just open my browser and type y 'space' metallica sad but true.

so that way i go directly search results on youtube. but to do that, i need to open my browser, or with synapse i need to select internet than type for my search.

what i wanna do is, put keywords for every tab at synapse, such as "i"for internet, "m" for music, "a" for applications and go on..

with that way i can search right in synapse without open my broser or select internet tab with arrow keys. my search should look like this; "i y metallica sad but true"

simple as that, if i already had mp3 of this song and wanna listen from my music player my search will like like this "m metallica sad but true"

i call this super shortcuts.

the current problems is, even if i already select internet tab with my arrow keys, synapse gives my serach directly to the google, not my browser so my youtube shortcut not working, i just search "y metallica sad but true" on google.

so is there a way to do this ? i belive keywords are working great at browsers and should work much better with synapse.

It looks like development has been reactivated as per January 2015? Am I correct?
