    A feature I especially like in Chrome is that once you've used a website's built in search it will be added to Chrome's omnibar, so you can, for instance, type in "en", hit tab, and write your search words to search the English Wikipedia. Does Safari 6 offer something similar to this? Maybe as an extension?

    This is the only thing that makes me want to switch back to Chrome.

    Me too... If you don't have it already, DL glims. It adds favicons and some other tab stuff like chrome. The only thing left is the tab search then I'm on safari for good.

    I tried to use the Omnibar extension by Alexey Efimov (you find it in the "official" extensions of Safari). I think it doesn't work on Safari 6 yet but, if I look for extension updates in preferences, Safari finds an update to version 0.2 (which should add compatibility).

    However, if I click on "install", Safari just doesn't do anything.

    Can you check it up too?

    Thank you! This worked perfectly.
    Edit: except now it doesn't let me do a google search properly in the omnibar, it takes me to the first link automatically :(

    I have glims and it doesn't allow the same sort of tab search that google chrome had.

    I'm glad I came back. The Keyword Search Extension perfectly solved my problem. Thanks for the replies in this thread.

    Zach23: you can right click anywhere on a webpage, and then there's an option "Keyword Search Extension...", you can add your own search engines there, and removing the Default one will solve your problem.
