Webjump is a programmable Web hotlist facility that uses Emacs completion to select a hotlist item and can prompt for query and option parameters.

You can invoke it with M-x webjump, and you will be immediately given a list of sites you may want to reach (some notable examples are the EmacsWiki and search sites like DuckDuckGo and Google.)

Examples

To add WikEmacs and the Emacs StackExchange site:

 (setq webjump-sites
       (append '(
                 ("WikEmacs" . [simple-query "www.wikemacs.org"
                                             "www.wikemacs.org/wiki/"
                                             ""])
                 ("Emacs SE"   . [simple-query "emacs.stackexchange.com"
                                               <nowiki>"https://emacs.stackexchange.com/search?q="</nowiki>
                                               ""])
                 )
               webjump-sample-sites))
