quick search specific site using the address bar

Smart keywords are an easy way to search specific websites from the Firefox address bar. Instead of going to the target website and navigating to the search box, you can start your site specific search from any site using the address bar.

For example, suppose you are going to search stackoverflow.com on a regular basis. You can define a smart keyword such as sof, then you can search Stack Overflow for information right on the Firefox’s address bar. For example to search Firefox on Stack Overflow, you would just enter sof Firefox in the address bar. Notice the space between the smart keyword and the the search string.

IKEv2, or Internet Key Exchange v2, is a protocol that allows for direct IPSec tunnelling between two points. In IKEv2 implementations, IPSec provides encryption for the network traffic. IKEv2 is natively supported on some platforms (OS X 10.11+, iOS 9.1+, and Windows 10) with no additional applications necessary, and it handles client hiccups quite smoothly.
