At DigitalChalk, we use Edgewall's Trac to for our development wiki and issue tracking system. Every single day, I will be talking with someone in sales, support, development or operations and will inevitably get asked to go and view a certain ticket by its ticket number. While it is simple to use the search field within Trac itself, it would be nice to just navigate straight to the ticket from the browser. This is where a custom search shined for me. You can take any known url and insert your search text right from the browser bar. I used this to setup a custom DigitalChalk Trac search that would take me straight to the ticket I was looking for saving me a click everytime.
Here is how you can set it up for yourself in Chrome:
