The shortcuts are not like bookmarks, they are more like a hidden feature.  To 
use them you have to type in konqueror's addressbar the shortcut and then the 
keywords.  Try it out yourself:

imdb:seventh seal
ggi:natalie portman

Vanilla KDE already includes 87 shortcuts by default, including rpmfind.  I 
think having a crux port search shortcut is more useful for us than having a 
rpmfind shortcut.

I also like the youtube shortcut, but I can remove it if its considered 
useless.  Any opinions?

I always find myself using gg (google), ggi (google images), imdb (movies), wp 
(wikipedia) and youtube shortcuts, and the only one that isn't included by 
default is youtube.

Besides this, and changing the default configuration to use cups by default, 
there isn't any other customization I have made.

Thanks for the feedback, any other comments?
