Instant Search is here to help you to increase your productivity by speeding up searches on many various websites. Faster searching is achieved by enabling custom shortcut words, that define which website should be searched.

From now on you don't have to go to e.g. Amazon website to enter your search query there. Just type your search query starting with letter "a" (following with a space) to the address bar and the search will be done directly on Amazon's website!

To open site's homepage enter just shortcut letter following with space (e.g. "a " for Amazon)

Another new way of searching many different websites is using context-menu. After you select some text on any website, use right click to open context-menu and choose the website you want the text selected to be searched for. Easy as that!

Optimising productivity has never been simpler.

Lamentablemente Google ya no permite la configuración, por lo que el valor de esta aplicación se ha reducido en gran manera. :-(( ¿Hay alguna alternativa actualmente? (junio 2015)

I dislike it, but I'll have to use it as there doesn't seem to be an alternative. The problems: 1. It only seems to work ~20% of the time when using the URL bar shortcuts 2. I do not want to open my (right click) search in the existing tab, I want my search in a new tab. Surely it's common sense to do it this way? 3. You can't add your own search URLs Needs some work. The Firefox instant search addon is much better, this just needs to replicate it. So frustrating
