Also firefox has a nifty feature called "keyword search". If you 
rightclick the searchfield on ebay you can choose:

 "Add a Keyword for this search..." 

That lets you add a bookmark with a keyword field, enter something short 
like the letter "e".

Now you can type "e <item number>" in the address field, and it usually 
gives you a hit (sometimes ebay fails... ebay is a mess).

It's really handy, a wikipedia search is no "w <subject>" for me.
