Firefox and the art of keyword bookmarking

I loveLifehacker, though many of their recommendations/suggestions aren’t applicable. Especially their computer articles, which tend to be Windows/Mac oriented. So when I first read one of their latest Hack Attack articles (Firefox and the art of keyword bookmarking), I assumed that I could just ignore it. Fortunately, I read far enough through the article to get to this bit:

Don’t be shy about adding keyword shortcuts to your favorite bookmarklets. For example, I’m absolutely crazy about the GMailThis! bookmarklet (it was actually the basis of my Bookmarking with Gmail feature). If I’m on a page I want to email to someone, all it takes is Ctrl-L, ‘gmt’, and Enter.

This is an amazingly convenient, time-saving feature. Especially since I have a half-dozen or so bookmarklets that I frequently use (posting to my three blogs, adding links to those blogs, GMail, Del.icio.us). Using the mouse for these bookmarklets is nowhere near as slick nor speedy as typing Ctrl-L, agt, [ENTER].
