Search Box extension is a perfect replacement to the missing search bar in google chrome.

This is one of my personal favourites, that i regularly use while searching on google. WebMynd extension embeds results from dozens of websites in form of beautiful widgets on the right side of your search results page. This brings the useful stuff from many websites, on a single web page! Presently in development stage, YouTube, Twitter, Oneriot and Hunch have been embedded into search results.

Do you use any such search enhancing extensions? What is your opinion on these extension? Lets us know!
These extensions are really useful but dont you think it actually effects the performance of your browser. I stopped using Mozilla just because I was using too many extensions in it. So what do you suggest Sahil, will it effect performance of my Chrome browser?
To me, performance and productivity together make a browser useful. Being a firefox user, i also faced problems using add-ons that i later realized were useless! Things are no different in chrome. So, it is better to figure out, what add-ons or extensions you require the most. Enable & disable feature is always there. Like, i have a list of addons that i use more often than others. And, “work specific addons” too, so i disable the useless ones at that time and turn on the required addons.
Of the above, i prefer using fastestChrome and search box. Rest are for convenience, one can select the search engine in search box making other extensions useless. I also want to shift to chrome, so let me know your experience with it after shifting.
Plugins are better kept to a minimum !! Anyway dats d way i use them !! X marks is ma personal favourite !!
Thanks for the comment srinivas! Google search now has most of the features in itself, as available with X marks! 🙂
