I'm wondering if there's any Google Chrome extensions that treat queries prefixed with @ as a request for a Twitter username, and request the correct Twitter user's page. I've had a look around in the Google Chrome Store, but haven't managed to find anything that fits this description.

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Options -> Basics -> Manage Search Engines. Create an entry for Twitter and give it a keyword (such as @). For the URL, enter this:!/%s. Now, type in your keyword and hit Tab, and then type in the username and hit Enter.
