How can I get the Awesome Bar in Google Chrome?

One feature I love in Firefox is the Awesome Bar. If I have forgotten any URL, but remember any sentence in the URL description (which appears on page top) or any word inside URL, I can start typing and Firefox starts showing results. I want to have this feature in Chrome, can u tell me how to do it?

    Actually, Google Chrome already has the feature (explained already above) implemented, but maybe not quite how you think. I actually went to http://www.giveawayoftheday.com and then went to http://www.google.com, then went to the url bar and typed in "theday.com" (without quotes) and it comes up as the 2nd suggestion underneath the url bar. So it does remember the full url based on the websites you've already visited. Give it a shot and you'll see what I mean.

    nope the thing i want is like this:
    for example i opened a url http://www.giveawayoftheday.com in firefox and then i forgot the beginning of the url, i only remember theday.com so next time when i start typing theday.com in firefox , it will start showing giveawayoftheday.com from my history in awesome bar before i press enter, but chrome can't do so, it can only show this from my history if i start typing from the beginning of the url which is giveawayof.... hope u got my point

    I haven't used FF in a while but it sounds a lot like Instant Search in Google Chrome.
    You can enable it within the Basic Options by checking the box next to "Enable Instant for faster searching and browsing"
