Overview

The most efficient way to use your favourite search engines. Search selected text, use customizable hotkeys and much more.

To get started with SearchBar, wait for it to finish installing, go to a web page such as www.google.com and press F4. If nothing happens, you may need to refresh the page. ___________________________________________ SearchBar brings the best features of Google Toolbar to Chrome, and much more besides: ● one-click search customization ● search selected text ● new tab search ● customizable hotkeys ● search suggestions ● search history ● highlight search terms ● find search terms in page ● search current site ● pre-populate with search terms ● resize, reorder and reposition ● completely customizable ● all in one convenient toolbar ___________________________________________ Please click "Support" to submit bug reports, questions and feature suggestions. Please do not leave bug reports in your review. If you have found the extension valuable, then please consider sponsoring me here: http://www.againstmalaria.com/SearchBar ___________________________________________ HOW DO I USE THE ONE-CLICK SEARCH CUSTOMIZATION? Right-click on any search engine's input field and select "Add to SearchBar...". HOW DO I SEARCH SELECTED TEXT? Selected text is automatically detected, eliminating the need for copy/pasting. HOW DO I DO A NEW TAB SEARCH? Hold the Ctrl key while pressing a button or hotkey. HOW DO I GET THE HOTKEY FOR SHOWING SEARCHBAR TO WORK ON THE NEW TAB PAGE? Set another hotkey by selecting "Keyboard shortcuts" from the menu of Chrome's Extensions page. WHY DOES THE EXTENSION NEED TO "ACCESS MY DATA ON ALL WEBSITES"? Chrome requires this permission to be asked for in order for the extension to be inserted onto every page. However, the extension does not change or use any of your data outside of its declared features. For more information, please see the privacy policy (link below "Additional Information"). WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CREATE SUCH AN AMAZING EXTENSION? This extension was borne out of personal frustration with Chrome's default search system and dissatisfaction with the features of similar extensions. I hope it improves your browsing experience as much as it has mine. This extension incorporates images from the Tango! Desktop Project. The developer may be compensated by You.com for referrals from SearchBar.

Very useful and well written extension. Would be possible to add custom field option in "Search suggestions" beneath the google one?

It worked great for months, but now shortcuts stopped working on some websites? Any advice?
