Does Chrome have anything similar to the search keywords in Opera?

I am thinking about switching my web browser to Google Chrome on my ASUS EEE because it has better screen usage but I really do like a lot of the handy things Opera provide.

"Options - Basics - Default search - Manage. This opens a dialog box that allows you to set keywords for each of your search providers. For example, I use ""g"" for Google, ""y"" for YouTube, and ""z"" for Amazon.

These are the same search providers that do the ""Pres TAB to search..."" function. As you browse the web, Chrome adds websites with search boxes here so you can use them from the address bar. You can use them either by pressing tab, or by setting up keywords."

"For better screen usage I think you should still use Opera as you can hide every bar and create gestures and/or shortcuts for that purpose. See my Opera show off here.

Search a little or come back and create threads here − or on my.opera.com − to ask how."
