What is Quick Search?
Quick Search is a built in tool that Google Chrome offers to be able to jump right to a search on other websites such as youtube, wikipedia, amazon, etc. Based on how we use these sites it could add up to saving a decent amount of time and takes very little effort on getting it setup.
First of all open up Google Chrome and go to Settings.
Then click the “Manage Search Engine” button on the screen.
A popup of all of the currently supported search tools should appear (as depicted below). As you can see websites such as wikipedia and amazon are already shown on this list. First we will make them a little bit easier to use with quick search. Lets change the second field of each of them to what is shown in the picture.
After Applying that setting when you type
in the navigation bar you will automatically search either wikipedia or amazon.
Now lets add youtube to this list.
So navigate back to Settings -> Manage Search Engines popup and go down to “Other Search Engines”
Fill out the boxes with:
Add a new Search Engine: youtube Keyword: y URL with %s in place of query: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%s
Click done and now you can just type
to quickly search anything on youtube
