Pro-tip: Search Salesforce via Chrome URL bar.

Instead of logging into Salesforce to search for an account, contact, etc., you can shortcut the process by making a Salesforce-specific query engine in your Google Chrome URL bar. Here's how to do it:

Step 1: Go to Preferences in Google Chrome
Step 2: Navigate to 'Manage Search Engines'
Step 3: Add 'New Search Engine'
Step 4: For 'Search Engine' field enter: Salesforce
Step 5: For 'Keyword' enter: salesforce (or whatever you want to be the prompt in URL bar)
Step 6: Set 'URL with %s in place of query' to: https://na46.salesforce.com/_ui/search/ui/UnifiedSearchResults?str=%s

And voila! Now, when you type 'salesforce' and press Tab, you can search your Salesforce right from your URL bar.
