The title pretty much summarizes what I want to know. Long time ago, I remember something called Google Custom Search, but I'm afraid that Google shut down that service too. Anyway, I love to bookmark on Google Bookmarks and also I like that Google keeps a record of every single search that I make, but it seems that Google Search doesn't want to include them on my normal queries.

I want to know if I can configure to do that. No plugins, no URLs other than Is this possible? If so, please tell me how.

If you are using Google's Chrome browser, or Firefox (optionally with the awesome Omnibar add-on), you will get direct suggestions from your history/bookmarks, if you search from the browser's address bar.

The matching is based on keywords -and optionally bookmark tags-, but I am not sure if the results (= suggestions) are prioritized on their type.

That is the thing @pleinolihg I wonder if Google do that! My guess is that they doesn't do that because the may close bookmarks service someday. –  raulricardo21 Oct 17 '12 at 18:38
Also, my problem with the plugins is that I used several Google Chrome/Firefox profiles. Don't ask :) –  raulricardo21 Oct 17 '12 at 18:39
Well, I suppose Google themselves don't integrate your bookmarks when you do a search, although I can't back that up with facts. I have no idea browse history-wise. –  pleinolijf Oct 18 '12 at 6:26
@pleinolijf, it will search your Chrome bookmarks, not your Google Bookmarks –  Steven Roose Oct 18 '12 at 14:47
ok, for me is pretty clear now, it seems that google doesn't have a way integrate those results on search but I have to look in the it self, thank to all –  raulricardo21 Oct 21 '12 at 5:15
