After you install Bynames you will be able to open your favorite webpages by simply typing one or two letters in the addressbar.
This is possible due to the shortcuts hosted in the database with intuitive keywords, placed on bynames.net.
The Bynames.net website hosts a number of intuitive search keywords (called bynames), such as "g" for Google, "fb" for Facebook, "yt" for YouTube, etc.
By installing Bynames, every time you enter something in your address bar that is not a URL or a keyword you have created by yourself, Firefox will connect to bynames.net and check if what your entered is a byname.
If it is, you will be redirected to the corresponding website.
For example, if you enter "t whatever", you will be searching "whatever" on Twitter, and if you enter just "t", you will be redirected to Twitter. If what you entered is not a byname, then Bynames will enter your input in Google's I'm Feeling Lucky.
The Bynames add-on is cross-platform and it works on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.
· Firefox 4.0 and later
