Format code tag that literally means "Replace this by a string of characters". Orinigally introduced in the C programming language as a format specifier for the printf function, it was later adopted by a plethora of other languages such as java, ruby, etc.
In C:

name = (char *)"Danny Boy";
printf("Hello '%s'.",name);

Produces;

Hello Danny boy.

Syntax is almost identical in any other language that implements printf.

%s is what appears when you click on the Urban Dictionary link in Mozilla Firefox.

This is because it's a special type of bookmark which lets you type the word "slang" followed by a slang term, and it will automatically look it up for you in this fine dictionary.

You can also use the words "google" (google), dict (dictionary.com), "wp" (wikipedia), and quote (stock market prices).
