Geek107, a friend of mine here sent it over two weeks back, and I am checking my email only today ! Sorry dude, here I am sharing your interesting find amount 1260+ regular subscribers of chromestory.com !
Searching from the addressbar or the omnibar is one of the best features of Google Chrome. With a small hack, you can do instant search on any search engine, using chrome addressbar. ( Read How to Enable Instant Search on Yahoo, Bing Or Any Search Engine Using Google Chrome here )
After the launch of the Chrome web store, I am sure that you guys have started spending a significant amount of time searching for extensions and apps on the web store. What you can do this from you addressbar ? You can do this by adding it as a search engine to Chrome.
How to Add Web Store As Search Engine in Chrome
Go to Options and select the “Basic” Tab. Click “Manage” next to “Search”
Give a Name; say “Chrome Web Store”
Give Keyword chrome.google.com/webstore?hl=en-us
URL should be https://chrome.google.com/webstore/search?q=%s
Click OK and you it should get added. On the “Manage” menu, you can set it as default if you would like to ! Try and let me know if you liked it !
ps: wp geeks here, try entering they keyword and the URL I have given in this post in a new post from wp-admin area, on chrome latest dev build I am using, the whole tab gets stuck. Let me know if you guys are getting the same result 🙂
