I use FF 2 & 3 and I created a bookmark that simply had a keyword
assigned to it.

Bookmark properties are as follows:

Keyword:        php
Description:    Type "php <search term>" in the address bar
                to perform a search

Not sure if you can do this with other browsers, but I have found it to
be very useful.
