Relatedly, if you use DuckDuckGo as your search engine, there's a number
of "Bangs" you can use:

!hoogle (a -> b) -> a -> b
!hackage defaultTimeLocale
!hayoo defaultTimeLocale
!haskellwiki Applications and libraries

This way you only need to change one setting (use DuckDuckGo) and you get all
these, and thousands more:
