sw27's BetterTouchTool Presets


I like Safari. I used to use the Safari Omnikey plugin. But change in Safari's specifications, Safari Omnikey is no longer available. I tried several alternatives, but could not find anything I liked, so I created this plugin.

Searchlight can be called up by double tapping the Option key anywhere on the screen.

Combine keywords and search words to display search results in the browser.

G bettertouchtool plugins

In this example, the first "G" is the keyword to search on google, and the following "bettertouchtool plugins" is the search words.

The following key combinations can be used when performing a search (only for safari/chrome).

  • enter: current tab
  • command+enter: new tab
  • shift+enter: new window

In the search form, press the up and down keys to view the search history.

Type "," in the search form to open the settings window. In the settings window, you can add a search provider or select a browser.

If you are interested, please try it!

I'll be working on performance improvements, bug fixes, and adding new features. If you like this, please buy me a coke

Japanese IM Keys

Allows you to use the Japanese keyboard "Eisu" and "Kana" key.

This is a preset with keys that can only be entered on a Japanese keyboard. This is useful for people who want to use the "Eisu" and "Kana" keys on a keyboard other than Japanese.
