I would like to use Stack Overflow as a search engine in my browsers.

enter image description here

Most of the time when I have a programming problem, I would like to search only on Stack Overflow, or Stack Exchange sites. So, I need to bookmark Stack Exchange sites, go there and type in my search query.

I would like to skip all these steps and enter my search terms directly in my browser's search bar. Is this possible (maybe with a plugin)? If not, could this feature be added?

We already insert OpenSearch metadata in every page. Since your screenshot looks like Firefox, and Firefox supports OpenSearch by default, all you have to do is go to http://stackoverflow.com, and then open the very popup that's in your screenshot – it will display the option Add "Stack Overflow".
