It seems that the only site on the web that is unavailable for search via Chrome's omnibar is Google's own Maps. Is there any way I could teach the omnibar to search Google Maps?

You'll have to add a custom search engine. Click on Chrome Menu → Options → Basics → Manage Search Engines. Under Add other search engine, add the following:

  • Name: Maps
  • keyword: mp
  • URL: https://maps.google.com/maps?q=%s

Now, type mp followed by the keyword will search for the keyword in Google Maps.

A small comment on this one: setting keyword to "maps.google.com" is more like the original automatic omnibar behaviour. Thanks! –  Nikolai Prokoschenko Jan 5 '12 at 15:00
Any idea why Chrome can't just autodetect this one, like it does with all other search pages? –  Thomas Ahle Nov 4 at 16:30

Use the process described by Sathya, but use the search string:

@DragonLord it's not link only answer, it's the actual link used to build the query. –  Sathya Nov 16 at 6:49
