Is there a way to create multi-variable search shortcut?

Google Search Trends lets me compare multiple terms, e.g. "foo" vs "bar." Here's the URL: http://www.google.com/trends/explore?q=foo#q=bar&cmpt=q

Is there a way to make typing "gst foo bar" in the Chrome omnibox direct me to the same URL?

Whilst you cannot use complicated string format for your Omnibox search term, you can use commas to compare different search keywords.

Simply create a new search shortcut with the keyword gst and the following URL

http://www.google.com/trends/explore?q=%s&cmpt=q

Search shortcut

then separate your keywords with a comma

Search terms

You will end up with this result

Google Search Term result
