Your Most Commonly Used Net Search Sites and Search Categories

I’m making a runner script to automate net searches. Add your most commonly used search URLs to the dictionary and associated hotstrings, and I’ll post the final script when it’s done.

#!/bin/bash
: '
List of search engines urls and associated hotstrings.

$query = the search query.
$asset_symbol = the asset symbol to use in crypto/financial searches.
$counter_asset_symbol = the counter asset used in crypto/financial charts.

dictionary key = the hotstring that calls the url.  Change to your liking.
