Wikipedia question

I have a question for everyone: when using Wikipedia, who among you simply types “” into the address bar with a word or two after the backslash to go directly to an article (for example,, rather than going to the main Wikipedia page and doing a search (or using Google)?

I’ve been doing the former for ages and am wondering if anyone else does.

  1. Yeah, I used to do that, but now I just use the Wikipedia search engine widget for Firefox.

  2. Where can I find that?

  3. I use the Firefox widget too. Pull down the choices in the window and pick “Add Engines…” at the bottom.

  4. I use the former but I’m a computer geek.
