Chrome.omnibox search keyword extensions don't work

  • [url=]chrome.omnibox API[/url] for extensions registers a search keyword that can be typed in the omnibox and the extension will handle the search query, thus providing suggestions for sites with nonstandard API, or without one, or implementing extended functionality. Vivaldi doesn't support such extensions. Their keywords aren't listed in Preferences -> Search. Their keywords aren't recognized when typed in the omnibox. Standard Chromium lists those separately in the Settings. Example of such extension: [url=]Omnibox for Github[/url]

  • Got the same problem with another useful Android SDK documentation search extension. Any workaround?
