If you don't know already, Ubiquity is super-cool extension for Firefox browser allowing you to do a lot of fancy things (my Insights plugin was partly inspired by it).
The following in an excerpt from WordPress Plugin Development (Beginner's Guide) book, explaining how to use Ubiquity to speed up WordPress development.
This is an add-on produced by Mozilla Labs and it can do a lot of fancy stuff. But for our purposes, we are going to use it for two simple things—fast search of PHP and WordPress documentation.
You will need to install Ubiquity from https://wiki.mozilla.org/Labs/Ubiquity and also install these two plugins:
- PHP Search: http://npattison.com/ubiquity/ubiq_php.html
- WP Codex Search: http://www.prelovac.com/vladimir/ubiquity-plugins/wp-codex-search
The way these two Ubiquity commands work is that when you press Ctrl and Space in the browser (this opens Ubiquity window) and then type 'php search_phrase' or 'wp search_phrase', it takes you immediately to the PHP or WordPress documentation for the given phrase.
The amount of time this can save is huge, especially if you need to take a peek at the documentation every minute or so like I do (I can't keep everything in my head!)
