This one can seem very naive or that everybody knows it, yet two years ago this simple trick turned out to be very useful for me.

Open Chrome and press Cmd l. Type github.com and press Tab. Now enter vim-colors-solarized or whatever you feel. When you press Enter the url will change to something like this https://github.com/search?q=vim-colors-solarized&ref=opensearch.

The same works for other sites like rubygems.com. If Tab does not change into search mode, probably you have to visit the site as the engine has to be activated.
