Except of course that 'put focus on URL line' is exactly what we're doing.
The Keyword.url setting in about:config makes duckduckgo handle all
URL line typing that's not an actual URL, and the ! are duckduckgo's
"bang syntax" searches
!w is wikipedia
!ebay is an ebay search
!a is an amazon sesarch
!map is a google maps search
