Since moving back to Chrome, I’ve missed some of my custom searches in the Keyword Search extension for Safari, despite having the same support in TextExpander. It just didn’t feel as fast as native browser support.
Did you know you can do this basically any website and combination of search terms?
One I set up recently was for my own tweets. Here’s how it’s done.
After you click on the link above (chrome://settings/searchEngines), add a new Site search:
Note: Clicking the link doesn’t always work. Copy and paste this into the URL bar:
Then fill out the pop up with the following info:
I made the shortcut
tw for Twitter. Use whatever you’d like!
The URL you need to list is:
Just make sure to replace YOURUSERNAME with your Twitter handle.
Then click “Add.”
After that, you should be able to use the the shortcut you chose in the Chrome search bar:
…and the results:
That’s it! Happy searching!
