OpenSearch gives the possiblity to define the search-engine for your browser. You will know it from google or wikipedia, now you can use it for TYPO3 related search.
If your Browser supports OpenSearch (IE and FF works) you can go to http://www.martinholtz.de/index.php?id=219 and add the TSref Search.
The Search is in experimental status at this time, if you have a suggestion, let us know: http://forge.typo3.org/projects/show/team-docteam
You can use some prefixes like "forge" to search in forge.typo3.org or "gg" to search in google. If you do not use a prefix you will be sent to the wiki.typo3.org - search. But if your search term is in a list of keywords (like IMAGE, typolink, stdWrap) you will be sent directly to the TSref-Wiki-Page.
In this Example the search term "stdwr" was typed in. You get all Objects and functions which has an property starts with "stdwr".
Using TSref Search
If a keyword is found which is available on documentation.typo3.org you will get redirected there.
You can type in any TypoScript function or Object and you will be sent to the corresponding Wiki Page.
# You type in IMAGE # then you will be sent to TSref/IMAGE # You type in stdWrap # then you will be sent to TSref/stdWrap
So it is a shortcut for sending you to TSref/# that you typed in.
Searching in typo3.org/extensions/
You can send a search request directly to typo3.org/extensions with the prefix "ext".
# You type in ext tt_news # will result in the same result as if you had typed in typo3.org/extensions/ search-box
Searching in wiki.typo3.org
The prefix "wiki" will search in wiki.typo3.org
Searching in forge
The prefix "forge" will search in forge.typo3.org
# You type in forge docteam # will send the search request to forge.typo3.org
search in the api
The prefix "api" will search in typo3.org/fileadmin/typo3api-4.0.0
# You type in api typoLink
search in mittwald medien forum
The prefix "mm" will send you to the mittwald medien forum (german only)
konvert timestamp in date format
Just type in the timestamp and wait a few seconds for the suggestions.
which options are possible ?
# Type only an ? # you will get all options as suggestion
At the moment these shortcuts are available:
mm | search in mittwald medien ext | search in typo3.org/extensions ?/help/hilfe | this help wiki | search in wiki.typo3.org snip/snippets | search in snippets.typo3.org any typoscript Object or function f.e.

something is missing?
perhaps, sometimes there will be a code completion via suggestion or a documentation via suggestion?
The Search is in experimental status at this time, if you have a suggestion, let us know: http://forge.typo3.org/projects/show/team-docteam (and assign that issue to Martin Holtz please:)

Opera and OpenSearch
Currently the Opera browser does not support OpenSearch. But Opera offers another possibility to add custom searches. To add the wiki to your Opera do the following:
- Go to any TYPO3 wiki page (you can do it on this one your reading at the moment)
- Right click into the wiki search field on the left
- Choose "Create Search..." from context menu
- Enter a name for your search and a keyword
- You are ready to use your new search
- For testing your new search just open a new tab and enter in the address bar [your keyword][Space][your search] p.e. T3W TSref
- FYI: This way you can create custom searches for nearly every page that has a search field. Just try it!
