Rewrite omnibox strings into desired URLs.

Configure the rewrite rules you'd like in the extention options. Rules are of the form:

regex_with_capturing_groups --> some_url_with_%s1_and_%s2

Where %s1 and %s2 are the first and second capture groups, respectively.

For example, the following rules may be useful:

Fallback: grab first URL and use it

.(https?://[^\s]+). --> %s1 .(www.[^\s]+). --> %s1 .(www\d+.[^\s]+). --> %s1 (.*) --> https://www.google.com/search?q=%s1
