    A San Francisco start-up on Monday is expected to begin offering its users a new way to do Web browsing: customizable keyword shortcuts.
    Created by a company called OpenDNS, the idea is to allow people to create keywords that point to favorite Web sites. Gadget buffs could link that word to CNET News.com's sister site Crave, for instance, so in the future they would be taken there merely by typing "gadgets" into their browser's address bar.
    "OpenDNS shortcuts are designed to make the address bar usable again," said David Ulevitch, the company's chief executive. The service requires creating a free account and configuring your computer to use OpenDNS.

    interesting concept. However, take Opera for instance.. There are so many smart browsing features there, I cant see this system making browsing easier.

    The new speed-dial, along with smart search-engine implementation (type g + keyword in the URL bar to google it), makes Opera really efficient and smart!
