6. Adding any site to search engine list:If the search engine of a site supports Open Search, you can add it to Google Chrome’s search box by simply visiting the site and performing a search. The domain name automatically becomes a keyword and you should only type the first letters from the URL until you see “press Tab to search”. Then press Tab and type your query.


You can also manually add search engines, by right-clicking on the address bar and selecting “Edit search engines”. Here’s one example, where you can see that you need to find the URL for the search results page and replace the query with %s:

Name – Wikipedia
Keyword – wiki (that’s what you need to type in the address bar)

You can also use the keywords for other kinds of services: for translating web pages, for bookmarking pages online or simply as aliases for web pages (omit “%s” from the URL).

Keyword – trans
