Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A tiny cosmetic feature request:

Could the search box be minimized with a press on Escape? Now we have to click somewhere outside the search box to minimize it to its initial size in order to get access to the header/top menu. Doing so with ESC would save a click.

Sure, this sounds like reasonable enough behavior.

This change will go out in the next build: hitting escape will de-focus and collapse the search box.
