Is There A Means Or Way A User Can Add A Search Box As A Separate Entity In Google Chrome's Graphical User Interface?
Posted on 2011-09-21
Hello. I have a question to ask you.
Is there a way a user can add a search box in some capacity in Chrome web browser (as part of the program's interface's GUI (Graphics user Interface)) if a user wanted one? Obviously, by default, there is none. I am thinking to the right side of the address bar like traditionally found in Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 6?
I bet some of you are wondering why I need a separate search box since I can search from the address bar itself since it doubles as a address bar/search box? The reason: I want a place to show the search terms I have been using as a placeholder. The search terms will disappear when the search box is incorporated into the address bar and your URLs only appear. Instead I will have to 'remember' or write the search terms down. This is pretty stupid given the features web browsers have had right along and the digital computer age we are in.
I am thinking maybe something in terms of installing an add-on or an extension from a developer applicable to Google Chrome or yet a totally different third party program you there to install that would impact the Chrome web browser interface?
If you have an alternate answer and solution for me, please reply with that answer and solution.

DO NOT USE LMGTFY.com or similar-like web links in your reply. I consider its use very unprofessional for EE experts. If you do, you will not get acknowledged and receive no credit.
