suggestion box的小问题! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
请问,能否添加一个选项,允许用户选择是否开启由该扩展提供的地址栏下方的suggestion box? 因为,有时候,这个suggestion box挺烦人的.
举个例子,Google images的搜索关键字是gi,当我在地址栏打出gi cover,这时候suggestion box的第一个结果是cover letter,所以页面第一时间载入的是cover letter这两个词的google images搜索结果,但其实我真正想搜索的就只是cover这一个词而已……这种情况很常见,不管你是搜cover还是搜good,好像主要发生在这些较短的词语上.
I'll reply in English as it applies to other users too:
1. Yes, I can add two options in fact. "Search only the typed" and "Do not show suggestions".
2. I've considered it before, but it's impractical to set auto-close Suggestion Box. For example, user might still be reading choices in the Suggestion Box when it's auto-closed. A preset auto-close time is difficult to be perfect even for the same user. Instead, I suggest you use one of these 3 methods to close Suggestion Box:
a. Press 'enter' key after you're done typing a keyword. NOTE: Even if the page for your keyword is already loaded by the Instant feature, 'enter' key would NOT reload the page. It'd simply close the Suggestion Box for you.
b. Press 'Esc' key closes it too.
c. If your hand is on mouse and can't press keys, then just click on page to close Suggestion Box (as you also noted).
These 3 methods cover all situations and while they might take a little getting used it, they do work the best to close the box as you like, at exactly when you like.
