searching brwiki in chrome

Postby John » Thu Mar 09, 2017 12:39 pm

:idea: I noticed that when I am using my chrome browser if I want to search the brwiki for something I can just click in the address bar and type "b" press tab and then type the term I want to search for and hit enter. It even auto-completes the terms for me with page titles from the brwiki. I thought it was nifty enough to share.

Note 1: If you type "b" and it's not enough, try typing "br" - it just needs enough to uniquely identify the wiki from other wikis you may frequent.

Note 2: My default search engine is google. I have not changed it to the brwiki.

Does this work for you too?

Also don't forget the quick links drop down menu in the upper left corner.

I think the Quick Links are here in the brforum, right? Not the brwiki or chrome.

But speaking of the brforum - if I type "brf" and tab in chrome it lets me search the br forum - auto completing with a list of recent topics I've looked - neat!
