I have/had these configured as search engines in Firefox (Vimium):

dpkg: https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=%s
(Understands binary package names only)

bts: https://bugs.debian.org/%s
(Understands binary package names, source package names with 
src:<package>, and bug numbers)

pts: https://packages.qa.debian.org/%s
dpt: https://tracker.debian.org/%s
(These will show source packages only, but can search by binary or 
source package names. The PTS has been superseded by Tracker)

man: https://manpages.debian.org/%s
(Understands man pages only)

'apt download <package>' works also without root privileges because it 
downloads to the current directory (not APT's cache).
