This would be neat, but it doesn't look like it will work with XenForo very well:
For 1 and 2 Chromium only adds sites that the user navigated to without a path. For example http://mysite.com, but not http://mysite.com/foo.
If you use full-friendly URLs, you get a path regardless, and anyone with searching under the root directory (ie this community), it seems like Chromium will ignore it.

Yes, it seems like using it will result in mysite.com/?s=andy while xf default search will lead to mysite.com/search/1540259/?q=andy&o=date

I mean, I guess XenForo could provide (or someone could write) an add-on that adds a searching script where it just takes the input from Chrome and redirects the users to the proper search, which in turn does the search. But that is slightly hackish.

I think Chrome needs to lighten the restrictions here slightly before its viable for a widespread implementation in the default software. Such a redirect hack shouldn't be necessary.
