Enable "Instant Search" like behaviour for websites in Google Chrome

When I was snooping around under the hood of chrome, I noticed this cool setting that pretty much enables "instant" for websites.

That's right. Instead of typing in the whole URL, all you need to is type in a few letters of the URL and chrome will automatically load the website. This works amazingly well (although there are a few times when it loads the wrong website, and may not be great when you're doing demos), and does a great job of loading websites even before you press the enter button.

To enable this, all you need to do is click on the wrench icon, and click preferences.

Under, search, you need to Enable Instant for searching and browsing.

That's it.
