How does it work?
Unfortunately Chrome doesn't provide an API to listen to "url submit" events, but we can approximate what this functionality would "feel" like by creating and leveraging a custom search engine. This "search engine" simply takes in the URL and the pipe parameters as a query string, and then does the right thing.
- googl: Take the input URL, shorten it via goo.gl shortener and redirect me to the resulting page.
- grep: World's simplest grep.. Download the page, walk over the content line by line and output matching lines.
