Yes, the search also works for the Name string so the Keywords is
redundant for English. However, I imagine that "Firefox Web Browser"
is translated, so preserving "web" and "browser" as English keywords
would be great in (most?) translations.

For 12.10, I'd like to see verbs used in the keywords also. My wife
tried typing "crop a picture" into the Dash but that doesn't work too
well yet.
