Put decent JavaScript documentation in your address bar


As we all know the highest ranked (by Google) site for JavaScript documentation is W3Schools. The problem is, it kind of sucks. Over the past few months I’ve found the highest quality of JavaScript documentation by far can be found at the Mozilla Development Network – just look at Date for instance.

I use Chrome pretty much everywhere now and using it’s custom search engine feature, we can put MDN right into the address/search/whatever bar. Just right click on the text box itself and hit “Edit Search Engines”. From here just add a new one with https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/search?q=%s as the url. Now just type mdn and what you’re looking for.

It’s the little things.
