Chrome: máis divertido cos motores de busca

Google Chrome

Agora que Chrome está dispoñible for the Mac, I've been messing with it all day and absolutely love it. The ability to troubleshoot sites with it is incredible… whether it's a CSS or a JavaScript issue.

One thing I always like messing with is the default search engine or list of engines – regardless of whether it's Firefox or safari. I search my own site often enough that I usually add that to the list. In addition, it's always fun to do things like make Bing your default search engine on Chrome to keep the monsters battling (I realmente me gusta Bing!).

Incluso construín o meu Engadir formulario de motor de busca for Firefox to make things easier. Chrome isn't quite as simple, it doesn't use the AddEngine component that Firefox does so you can't simply build a link. As well, there's no dropdown for selecting the search engine.

However, there is one fantastic feature with the omnibar… you can add the keyword of your choice to add a search engine. Here's how to add a search engine:

  1. Vaia a Preferencias de Chrome e faga clic en administrar nos motores de busca ou prema co botón dereito en Omnibar e seleccione Editar motores de busca.
  2. Add the name of the search engine or site you'd like to search, a keyword to easily distinguish it, and the search engine URL with %s as the search term. Here's an example with ChaCha:

Agora podo simplemente escribir "ChaCha" e a miña consulta e Chrome codificarán automaticamente o URL e enviarano. En realidade, isto é moito máis doado que premer nun menú despregable e seleccionar o motor de busca. Teño cada un dos meus motores de busca con palabras clave ... Google, Bing, Yahoo, ChaCha, Blog ... e só uso o omnibar para obter resultados rapidamente. Unha vez que comece a escribir, Chrome completa automaticamente e proporciona a información de busca:

Podes incluso actualiza o teu estado de Twitter usando omnibar xa que Twitter ten un método de cadea de consulta para completar un Tweet. Ou podes engadir un atallo de palabras clave para buscar en Twitter http://search.twitter.com/search?q=%s.

Para os desenvolvedores, podes facer buscas de código en Google Codesearch con consultas específicas de idioma como PHP http://www.google.com/codesearch?q=lang%3Aphp+%s e JavaScript http://www.google.com/codesearch?q=lang%3Ajavascript+%s. Ou podes facer unha busca de funcións en PHP.net con algo así como: http://us2.php.net/manual-lookup.php?pattern=%s. Ou jQuery http://docs.jquery.com/Special:Search?ns0=1&search=%s.

Divulgación: ChaCha is a client of mine. They've got some incredible results, though… especially when you're seeking something simple like an address, phone number, trivia question, or even better… jokes. They do have some incredibly robust pages on celebrities and topics, too.
