Quicker Google Search

If you like to use Google’s “I’m feeling lucky” button, then this tweak is for you. Now you can enter “goto (search term)” and perform a Google “I’m feeling lucky” search right from IE’s address bar.
Here’s How:

Open regedit
Navigate to “HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerSearchUrl”
Add a new key called “goto” (without the quotes)
Make the default string value “http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=%s&btnI=I’m+Feeling+Lucky” (without the quotes)

Now open IE and type “goto (search term)” and see the results.
