Fast Look Up for Linux Apps Screenshots

Debian has recently launched screenshots.debian.net, a site for looking for and uploading screenshots of applications available in Debian's repos, specially the ones having a graphical interface to show off, while the latest version of package manager Synaptic is said to support showing package screenshots retrieved from this site's database. But if you want a faster and direct way to look for screenshots you can create a bookmarklet in Firefox with url = http://screenshots.debian.net/package/%s and keyword = screenshot (or any keyword you prefer) and then just type something like "screenshot gimp" in the browser's location bar to look for Gimp screenshots.
