Chrome Extension: Search Google Drive from the Omnibox

I realized today how much time I waste by going to Google Drive first and then searching for a file. Chrome already allows you to search the web from the Omnibox, shouldn't you be able to search your Drive, too?

The answer is yes. And the creators of the "Quick Search for Google Drive" Chrome extension are making it possible.

This is going to quickly become my most used extension. After you install it, any time you want to search your Drive, just type "drive" in the Omnibox, hit space, then type the name of the file you're looking for. Quick Search will  autocomplete your search results and you just select your file from the list.

Grab "Quick Search" now and watch it quickly become a part of your everyday workflow with Google Drive.
