Comment (by dcf):

 By the way, cool hidden feature, you can do a single-word search in the
 location bar if you prefix the word with a question mark, like `?onions`.

 I learned this because in Firefox, you can type Ctrl-L to focus the
 location bar and Ctrl-K to focus the search box. In Chrome, because
 there's no search box, Ctrl-L puts you in the location bar, and Ctrl-K
 also puts you in the location bar but auto-inserts a `?` at the beginning.
