I've read numerous posts asking for a search submit button to be added which users can press/click to invoke a search rather than needing press enter.
Some have requested for accessibility reasons, some mobile browsing issues, but none seem to have had an official response, and some with "status-declined".
I was going to request this, but given the seemingly negative view on it, I thought I'd instead ask for an official response as to why it won't be implemented.
I wanted this as I quite often paste search terms into the search box with my mouse, and then want to click on results with my mouse.
While it's not arduous having to shift from using my mouse to press enter on the keyboard, it is a tad frustrating.
It would be much better to be able to paste with my mouse, press "Go" with my mouse, and then click on the result links with my mouse.
I believe the key UX I seek is with my mouse.
Is there any reason Stack Exchange seem to shy away from implementing this?
