Mimic Firefox address bar behaviour in Chrome

In Firefox I can easily find a site I've already visited by typing part of the URL and I get a list of URLs containing that string in a dropdown beneath the address. Can I get Chrome to do this?

For example, typing "min" into my Firefox address bar is a quick way to find all the URLs I have visited with the word "minecraft" in them - the most visited one at the top.
This does not work in Chrome, or if it does it's very hit and miss because it seems to search the page content, not the URL itself. For example typing "flood" into the address box (omnibox) brings up two totally unrelated sites but not the one URL in my history with the word "flood" in it.
I'd like to use Chrome more, but this really is a dealbreaker - is there any way round this?
