Advanced search operator can be used to dynamically select your search engine. fe,

or, if you prefer to give engine name at the end:
[your search query] @engine1,engine2
@google , yahoo [your search query]
[your search query]@google , yahoo
or using shorthand,
[your search query]@g, ama
@g, ama [your search query]
Search engine keywords can be used with or without the operator. For example, if "e1" is a key word "engine1", then one can search Yahoo and engine1 with:
@y,e1 [your search query]
