Skip google search when a local private domain name is entered in the URL bar
When a local private hostname is entered in the URL bar without a trailing slash (e.g. yourenv.yourcompany.develop), by default Chrome searches for it on Google. This extension catches the search requests related to the domains you setup by clicking on the extension button, and immediately redirects to the host you originally entered, without the need to wait for the Chrome dropdown to appear.

- (2020-08-10) Antoni N: Does exacly what it says on the tin. Chromium refuses to accept RFC domain (".local") that is explicitly reserved for local networking, here is fix for my frustration with that. Thank you.
