Easily Search the Apple Developer Site With Chrome

November 4, 2010

Sal Conigliaro put together a handy extension for Safari and Firefox that offers easy searching of the Apple developer site. Chrome users can take advantage of a great little omnibox feature to add a similar capability. Under Preferences > Basics click Manage Search Engines, then at the bottom of the page add this URL for a keyword like adc:


Now you can type “adc blocks” in the omnibox and hit return to search the Apple developer site for “blocks”.

Chrome Custom Search Active

These custom search strings work for anything that has a parameter as part of the URL. You can set up “t [ticket number]” to go a specific item in your ticketing system, “ts” for a Twitter search, etc.
