Make a search in a website using the Omnibox of Google Chrome
Gain some precious seconds and bypass advertising by making a search in a website but without opening it. This can be achieved by making a search directly from Chrome's Omnibox.
Configuring the new search engine
The first step is to perform a search on the selected website and then locate the search term in the URL generated by Google Chrome. For example upon searching the term "hello
" on youtube, the following url is created: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=hello
The search term is located at the end of the url.
Now go to Settings
Move to the Search
section, click Manage Search Engines
In other search engines, create your new search engine by filling in the three fields:
- The name for your new search engine
- The keyword to activate the search engine
- The url of the search by replacing the search term by %s. Example for Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%s
Click on Finished
