Getting a Firefox-style search bar in Chrome?

I'm trying to start using Chrome instead of Firefox. I'm really liking it, but there's one problem that's been bugging me. I use the search engine bar in Firefox A LOT, and I'd like to get it in Chrome as well. I don't mean just for Google - I use my Firefox searchbar for, Wikipedia, Youtube, and like 5 other sites. Is there a way to get a searchbar in Chrome that works like the one in Firefox?

You can search most sites right from the url bar, type the address then hit tab followed by your search terms. Much nicer than a separate bar. You can create shortcuts as well.
