In Web, Smart Bookmarks appear in a dropdown menu when entering text in the address bar. By selecting a Smart Bookmark the respective web site is accessed using the text as argument. Smart Bookmarks can also be added to the toolbar, together with their own textbox.[non-primary source needed] The same applies to Galeon, which also allows the user to collapse and expand the textboxes within the toolbar.
Smart Bookmarks can also be shared, and there is a collection of them at the web site of the Galeon project.
So far, there are two ways to employ smart bookmarks: either through the assignment of keywords or without. E.g. Mozilla derivatives and also Konqueror make you assign keywords, then you type these keywords directly into the address bar followed by the term. Epiphany does not allow you to assign keywords. Instead you type the term directly into the address bar, then all smart bookmarks appear on an address bar drop down list and you pick the one to use.
Usage and creation of smart bookmarks
Smart bookmarks usage: you enter keyword and search term separated by a blank space into the address bar; there is no need for the search bar!
