springwhiz

springwhiz is a free webapplication that gives you some tools to enhance your browsing experience. It is your personal start page with quick access to favorites and other neat stuff. If you prefix your query with an '@' or '#' symbol, springwhiz will run a command or browse to a favorite respectively.

If the prefix is not found your query will be send directly to the duckduckgo.com search engine. This means you can use the awesome !bang syntax duckduckgo offers to search on hundreds of sites directly.

springwhiz is open source software release under the ISC license. You are encouraged to run it on your own webserver and modify/extend it to your needs.
