Overview

Open web pages by entering keywords instead of full URLs. It is faster and more reliable.

Sometimes typing a URL is faster than opening a bookmark. ⚡️Search Bar Shortcuts (Omnibox shortcuts) are built for people who often access some websites this way. The extension makes it even quicker, more reliable & predictable. ⭐️How it works 1. Set the shortcut and the link it should open (like "e" = example.com); 2. Type the shortcut into the browser search bar and hit ↵Enter; 3. Instead of your search engine page, the extension opens the page you defined. ✅ Extension RUNS LOCALLY on your device. No data/request is ever sent or received. Note: to achieve a natural feel, and due to technical limitations, the search results page actually opens. Then the extension reads your search request. If it matches one of the shortcuts, the page gets immediately replaced with the set page. This is why the extension requests access to your search engine page. ⭐️Supported 🔗 Link types: http, https, ftp, local files (works only in some browsers). 🕵️‍♂️ Search engines: Most popular ones (we are not allowed to list them here) 💻 Browsers: Chromium browsers, FF and Safari 💡Usage ideas/examples 1. Get straight to the needed page (avoid home, welcome, and other pages on your way to your everyday content). Example: Open your project management application boards bypassing the home page 2. Open the same pages with different accounts. Example: Google uses different URLs to open different accounts for Gmail, Calendar & other products. You can set 'g1' to open your personal Gmail and 'g2' - for the work one. 3. Open your company page without typing the exact URL. Example: Usually, organizations have multiple pages on their domain. SaaS companies can additionally have app subdomains. Because of this, when you type http://company.com/ or http://app.company.com/, many suggestions appear, which do not always match what you need. Set 'app' for your SaaS app page, 'ccom' for the company home page. It makes entering the page quick and reliable, just type the shortcut and you're guaranteed to open that exact page. 👀Additional suggestions 1. To avoid coincidence with your real search requests use short text for your shortcuts that is unlikely to ever become the word you search for. 2. You may use special characters at the beginning of the shortcuts to make it even less likely to be your search request. For example, you can use a dash '-ccom'.

Hello Justin, thank you for trying the tool. I believe there was some misunderstanding about the way the product works. In order for the tool to open your keyword you have to actually enter that specific keyword and hit Enter. What happens in your example is you type "g", Chrome suggest you "gmail" (i.e. https://mail.google.com/) and when you hit Enter you submit the gmail address instead of the "g" to your browser. This is the reason why it doesn't work for you. And also it's why we suggest either using keywords that would not get any suggestions or maybe using a dash before the keyword like so "-g", this way it won't suggest you Gmail. Overall, the way I use it in this case, I type "g", it suggests something, I hit Backspace to reject any suggested items, and I hit Enter to actually get to the keyword. It is true for any keywords you have in case browser gives you some suggestion, you just need to reject the suggestion before hitting Enter. If no suggestion appears, you can obviously skip the Backspace step. Please let us know if that works, in case any more help is needed our email is dotoast.com@gmail.com. If that does not work, we can get you a coffee :) And, once it helps, please change the rating here, 'cause you'll love the tool once you figure out how it works. Thanks!
