Is your default search engine?

Then, if you use a lot, you might find it interesting thing to know that there are focused on OSM that you can simply type in your browser's search bar

!osm <something> - search for "something" in OSM.
!osmw <something> - search the OSM wiki (very good results!)
!taginfo <something> check for taginfo data about tagas or key/key-value pair
!otw <something> data mining query with

and more!

@jambamkin "premium search", huh?

How's the quality of their search results?

@MapAmore They just went freemium yesterday. Kagi's whole things is to use data from ad blockers to bring up results that don't overload you with ads. Plus you can raise/lower/block results from any domain you choose. They are using Google and Bing data to create the results so I usually find what I want first time. Sometimes I'll end up on a seven year old blog post on some random persons blog and find somthing truely interesting.

@MapAmore
Very cool thanks, the problem is always the search results with OSM aren't that great but I'll test it out

@rastinza I agree with you, and that's why "!osmw" is so handy.
