I'm Feeling Lucky in Omnibox

July 31 2014, 2:48pm

Sometimes I know the first result of google search will probably get me what I want, so I was wondering if there was a way to use "I'm Feeling Lucky" in chrome's url address bar, turns our you kind of can:

  1. Under Options / Basics / Default search, click the Manage button to bring up Search Engines window.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Set Name to "I'm Feeling Lucky"
  4. Set Keyword to something short and simple to remember.  (I like 1-character keywords, so I just use "L".)
  5. Set URL to the following: http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=1G1GGLQ_ENUS264&q=%s&btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky
  6. Click OK.
