Search a specific site (tab to search)
Start typing the web address of the site you want to search in the address bar. If Google Chrome has a record of the site's search engine, it automatically offers you the option to search that site. If you remember the search engine's keyword, you can also type the keyword in the address bar. Press Tab to choose the search engine, type your search term, then press Enter.

Can you get it to work with Xenforo.com ?
