Dubbed Taskfox, the move sees Mozilla's Ubiquity project become part of the browser itself, allowing users to type commands directly into the address bar.

You can, for example, type "map cleveland street london" to bring up a Google Map of that location, or "amazon-search the great gatsby" to find that book on Amazon, without visiting the website directly.

Interesting. Is Firefox trying to out-Google Google with shortcuts to content?

How does one become a preferred provider? With a giant donation to the Mozilla foundation? :)
