My Reviews

Quick Search Bar

It could be even better Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To the developer:
Nearly perfect, just lacks a few things to be superb:
1.- You have to add a keyboard shortcut that focuses the search bar just like many focus awesome bar (with F4 or any of that keys)
2.- This is not very important, but it would be nice that you could control the number of suggestions to be shown for each search engine and put up to 20 at least (now is 10, but, another thing: not all are displayed because my search history also shows results and some searches are hided)
3.- To end, if you could give us tools to control the number of our search history suggestions that are shown, and get advanced controll of the way they display this would become a really must have, and many people will have to rethink their browsers window to fit a big enough searchbar.

I know all these modifications can be difficult, but most people prefere to include basic search capabilities to the adress bar and get rid of the search bar (just like crhome did), so you have to give more power to the search bar because it is a powerfull tool that should not be hided.

PD: Reply if you want me to explain point 3 or to be more specific about anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great, but could be even better:
Combining the search bar and url bar is a good idea, for the next version it would be awesome that you could make searches with several search providers. Let me explain:
You could add some features like shortcut search as instantfox does. If you tipe b(space) in the url bar the engine could change from default (google) to bing. y(space) for youtube, w(space) for wikipedia, so that the sugestions of each engine are shown, u know??
