Is there an Instant search from address bar like chrome?

in google chrome I could type youtube and press tab then search for anything I want and it will search in youtube

I could do this to almost anything (stackoverflow, quora, yahoo, ruqqus.com, pixabay, etc…)

In brave I found this working for search engines only like google or duckduckgo, any help to get this feature working in brave too??

(I’m trying to upload attachment to make it more clear but it tells me I can’t :frowning:

Hello @Zeyad-Shaban

not sure if i got you

In brave I found this working for search engines only like google or duckduckgo, any help to get this feature working in brave too??

brave does not have search engine they still working on that so they relay on other search engine

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Nope that’s not what I meant
Go to address bar and type google.com and press tab, now you can type your search query and brave browser will search in the specified URL you typed in the beginning (google.com)
This works for google.com, duckduckgo, bing but not for other websites like quora.com youtube stackoverflow etc…

In chrome it works for everything while in brave it works for limited websites only (most of them are search engines)

Thanks for helping

you very welcome @Zeyad-Shaban

i got you now but not sure if that avaiable in brave i tried to look in the setting page but did not find anything

so i think you could change the category of the topic to feature request

That’s really good advice. I myself am not that comp/device literate. Suppose that’s why my information/accounts/ Facebook/messenger gmail accounts. Have gotten hacked. So happy to try this browser. Thought I was. I think someone else was using my account. I just now got signed up.

Ok, thanks for helping

It works with any website (I myself use this feature) for example Wikipedia, the forum we are writing in (community.brave.com) etc. but you have to add the website to this list brave://settings/searchEngines in “other search engines”. Although the name of the section is “search engines”, you can add any kind of website.

“In addition, search engines can also be added to your list simply by navigating to the desired search address and performing a search. You will see the new search reflected in the Other Search Engines list.” See https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360017479752-How-do-I-set-my-default-search-engine-
