You can setup firefox so in the location bar (Alt+D) typing "h query"
(without the quotes) will perform a hoogle query. Simply right click
in the search box and click "add keyword search" with "h" as the
keyword. You can also do the same for Google, which I've been using
for years (Opera 5 had this feature!)

re: Hoogle not always getting it exactly right, there are a few known
bugs floating around which I'm working on. Hoogle can permute the
order of arguments though, so that shouldn't be a problem. It doesn't
really like Monads, but I wrote Hoogle before I was aware of
higher-kinded type classes, so its understandable...
