Some people say it's coming back with this add-on! At least some aspects.

Once AwesomeBar HD provides support for adding custom searches as well
as instant previews, you get something that feels very much like
Ubiquity. You can type a command and some words, and you see a results
page update as you type.

One big difference is that this feels more "of the web" in that there
aren't specially written Ubiquity commands. It's a search that hits a
webpage with a query. (And if the site is fancy like Google Translate,
using the URI #fragment avoids refetching whole pages for this instant
preview / live updating behavior.)
