ENGLISH

For those of you who are useing the webshorts in konqueror and would like to use the same shorts in Firefox too:

My little script converts the KDE webshorts to a Netscape html bookmark file. Therefore you can simply import the created file into your Firefox bookmarks and use the known konqueror shorts.

A short description how to import the created file is shown at start of the script.

Note: To use the webshort in Firefox you must type the shortcut followed by a whitespace and then the search query,
e.g. "gg mysearch" and
NOT "gg:mysearch" as you could do in konqueror!
---------------------

DEUTSCH

Für alle die gerne ihre Konqueror Webkürzel auch in Firefox nutzen möchten:

Mein kleines Skript konvertiert die Webkürzel in ein Netscape HTML Bookmark File das dann in Firefox importiert werden kann. Danach stehen die euch aus Konqueror bekannten Webkürzel als Schlüsselwort in Firefox zu Verfügung.

Eine Importanleitung erhaltet ihr beim starten des Skripts.

Hinweis: Um ein Webkürzel in Firefox nutzen zu können muss das Kürzel gefolgt von einem Leerzeichen und der Suchanfrage eingegeben werden, also in der Form
"gg meine suche" und
NICHT "gg:meine suche" wie in Konqueror möglich.
