Provides quick commands from your browser’s address bar to search on popular movie sites.
This extension is a great tool to help you discover movies easily and conveniently. Instead of typing the URL of the site, going to the site, and typing again to look for a movie or a show, our extension provides you with a shortcut to perform a quick search using simple commands directly from your Chrome’s address bar.
Here is how it works after the extension has been added to your Chrome:
Step 1: Go to the address bar and type @; a list of five default movie sites and their respective hotkeys will show up in the autocomplete results.
Step 2: Type the hotkey of the site you want to search on, after the @ symbol. For instance, the command “@imdb” stands for IMDB. Check out the “special features” section below for the full list of hotkeys that you can use.
Step 3: Leave one-character space after the hotkey and type the name of the film or show that you are looking for. For instance, the command will look like “@imdb titanic” if you want to look for “Titanic” on IMDB.
Step 4: Choose one of the autocomplete suggestions and you will be redirected to IMDB’s results page.
