Why is the loss of keyword search a big issue?
I have dozens of keyword search bookmarks. Sure I can change them to
search engines, but instead of typing
g search [enter] (1) or
h search [enter] (1) etc, I have to type
search (1) click
Search engine (2) scroll to the desired search engine (in a list of +40) (3) and click [enter] (4).
I need (4) different user-actions on different parts of the screen, instead of the old (1) user-action typing on the keyboard.
It’s a usability nightmare.
Please bring it back, and at least bring the omnibox API to Android.
Instead of installing another and another extension for a feature, the bookmark and the old keyword (search) is much easier.
Although I prefer to have both: Users need to type the keyword anyway, what’s wrong with offering a lot of power by typing a letter and space first.
