9 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.

14 * **grep**: World's simplest grep.. Download the page, walk over the content line by line and output matching lines.
