Google Chromes’ address bar (Omnibox) doubles as a search box: simply type a search term in the box and press Enter to see results from your default search engine. You can also use it to search sites that you've previously visited – Just start typing search term e.g. "youtube" in address bar; after few letters, address bar’ll automatically offer you the option to search the site; hit Tab on your keyboard to convert the address bar into a search box for the site. Then type what you're looking for and press Enter. Google Chrome’ll immediately bring you to the search results page on that site. In this case, you'll see YouTube's search results page for "dog on skates". Use this "tab to search" shortcut to save yourself a few clicks the next time you want to quickly search a site.
