Find-as-You-Type Search in Google Chrome
Jan 20, 2010
I’ve mostly given up Firefox for daily web browsing in favor of Google Chrome. Chrome is fast, stable, and just enough for what I do—however, it lacks built-in, find-as-you-type search. Luckily, there’s an extension you can use, if you install the developer version of Chrome.
(Whenever possible, I avoid using the mouse. Keyboard shortcuts are much faster and don’t require a physical context switch.)
Installing Google Chrome (Dev Channel)
Now, visit the Type-ahead-find extension page, click “Install,” and load a new tab. Use / for search or ‘ for link-only search.
