    Default How can I make OmniBar more like AwesomeBar?

    ... in 2 ways:

    1) what is the URL for setting Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" result as the OmniBar's Default Search?

    2) is it possible to make OmniBar's as-you-type suggestions smarter? I don't know how else to explain it, other than simply that Firefox's AwesomeBar gave me much more accurate, appropriate suggestions

    I'm a recent Firefox -> Chrome convert, loving most things about Chrome so far. But this is a big feature for me... my job requires quick access to several dozen websites; few enough that I visit each one a couple of times a day, but too many to bookmark individually and still be efficient.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    You can bookmark the pages and pin them to your new tab page to increase their rating.
    Also, the more you select them from certain things you type in the omnibar, the higher rating they get.

    For the I'm Feeling Lucky button.. go to Wrench->Options->Basics->Default Search->Manage click Add... and enter a name and keyword then put this as the URL:
    Code:
    http://www.google.com/search?btnI=I'm+Feeling+Lucky&q=%s
    The keyword is what you type before your search query. So type the keyword, then tab, then your query. I put luck as mine.
