Search Palette (and associated search macros)

I thought I'd mention something about palettes, as I quite like them,

I use this one quite a lot during my day. The idea is that I have something highlighted and then call up my Search Palette with ctrl-alt-H (or searcH in my mind).

Up comes the palette and I then use the appropriate hotkey; L for LinkedIn, D for DuckDuckGo, S for Spotlight, O for the Oxford English Dictionary, X for when I need to write in French and want to see a conteXtual translation of what I'd like to say....

This means that the workflow is simply ctrl-alt-H L when I want to look up someone on LinkedIn.

Knock yourselves out with your own favourite lookups—maybe even tell us what they are?
