I'd like it if hitting the slash key (/) would go to the search box, like it does in Gmail and Vim.

I could then type my query after doing:

  1. Ctrl + T
  2. www.stackoverflow.com
  3. search query

and mousing to the search box wouldn't break my typing flow.

    It's the first tab in Opera to get to the search box. / is the on page find tool. – random Nov 18 '11 at 20:51

As Random pointed out tab does just what I want. Don't know why I didn't think of that...

  • Did not know you were even using Opera if that was the case – random Nov 18 '11 at 21:31
  • I use Chrome, but your solution worked the same :) – David Silva Smith Nov 18 '11 at 21:33
  • It should work in any browser which supports tabindex. – ughoavgfhw Nov 18 '11 at 23:14
