Search box in Chrome

Is there a plugin to Chrome that adds a separate search box?

I'd like to set the address bar as 'feeling lucky' search, and a separate box for google search. What's especially important to me is having two keyboard shortcuts like in Firefox: Ctrl-K to search, Ctrl-L to feel lucky.

Answers

The address bar is the search bar. Here's a solution I made:

  1. Go to [Spanner] > Options > Basics > Default Search > Manage
  2. Click Add
  3. Enter this url for URL:

    {google:baseURL}search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}sourceid=chrome&ie={inputEncoding}&q=%s&btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky

  4. Set as default

This should make your default search provider the I'm Feeling Lucky service. I have several search providers (keywords are excellent in Chrome, entering "php substr" takes me to the php.net site and tells me while I'm typing I'm using the PHP search engine).

There is a "trick":

You can add a custom search engine, you have to use the "Feeling lucky" as another engine:

Follow the directions described here:

Use:

Name:Feeling lucky

Keyword:fl

URL:http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%s&btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky

and then you can type:

FL + tabYour termENTER

And it will take you there.

You can use the search in the "new tab". I don't think plugins are supported yet...

One solution is a bookmarklet:

javascript:q = "" + (window.getSelection ? window.getSelection() : document.getSelection ? document.getSelection() : document.selection.createRange().text); if (!q) q = prompt("You didn't select any text.  Enter a search phrase:", ""); if (q!=null) location="http://www.google.com/search?btnI=&q=" + escape(q).replace(/ /g, "+"); void 0

Create a new favourite and replace the url with the code above. Click on the bookmark to search.

There is no official or unofficial plugin for "new search box" released yet. A quick google search suggest the same :)
