Browse tags at a glance with OmniWeb

With OmniWeb you can create wonderful shortcuts for browsing Technorati tags at a glance. Just go to Preferences, Shortcuts and create a new shortcut (clicking +). Name it, for example, technorati and use tag@ for the keyword. In the URL write: http://www.technorati.com/tag/%@

It's done. Now, if you want, for example, browse the "music" tag just go to the addres bar and type "tag music", as you would do with a normal URL. You will be taken to the technorati page http://www.technorati.com/tag/music. Want to see what's going on with "mac"? Just write "tag mac"...

It works because the @ in the keyword tells omniweb that a parameter will follow the keyword ("music" in our example). In the URL the parameter is expanded right at the %@ location. Of course, this method also works with flickr and del.icio.us. This is left as an exercise for the reader !

(Yes, this is a bit off-topic in this blog... That's why I love blogging: freedom of posting at last! )

P.S: OK, I have learned the lesson. Now, this things will go to my other blog. I promise to keep this on topic from now on...
