Ooops :-)

havent noticed that. Im using 2.18.1 under Ubuntu 7.04 and can only
choose between "primary" and "all" search-engines under preferences

But does it allow to use keywords for the other backends too: 
beagle, evo and the like?

When im working quickly, I like to omit the mouse/arrow keys where ever
I can. (passionated vim-user ;-) )

So "Alt-F3 -> b sth" would be a good replacement for my gesture+browser

I see now that it is more than writing a simple handler (and thus
exceeds my skills). Take it as a serious feature request.
