    I noticed a couple people asking about this, and wanted to let you know how I got shortcuts to work in Chrome.

    Click the settings button (the wrench icon), then select Options.
    Next to Default Search, click Manage.
    Click Add.
    Name: OpenDNS
    Keyword: opendns
    URL: http://guide.opendns.com/?url=%s
    Click OK, then close out of the settings windows.
    In the URL, type "opendns <keyword>" and it opens your shortcut.

    This isn't in the KB for some reason, but an admin can feel free to add it.

    Thanks. I guess the admin hasn't felt free to add it to the KB yet, but maybe he should. :wink:

    Of course one nice thing about Chrome address bar is how it responds to repeatedly entered URLs. For example, after going to netflicks.com a few times, we only need the first few letters of netflicks + Enter. This beats my OpenDNS shortcut "opendns nf" which is not really an improvement on typing "netflicks.com" anyway. Maybe that's why the admin didn't bother with Chrome? Nevertheless, Chrome shortcuts is probably still a frequently asked question...

    I was able to make OpenDNS the default search in Chrome, that way I don't have to type in "opendns <keyword>".

    If you make it the default you can directly type in the Shortcut !!

    Nice! That would be the best way to go with Chrome. However, I've tried the others and still prefer Google as my default search engine (sorry Bing/Yahoo/OpenDNS).

    Chrome is spyware. Better use Chromium/Iron - without any problems at privacy and security.

    Edit: And while you're there, get Google search results through http://www.Scroogle.org/ - this further adding to your privacy and security.
