    I like it!
    I'm not sure I like it enough to forego the use of firefox's search bar ( and by the way it doesn't work with firefox's default homepage.
    As for SEO, I've always considered it a tad on the wrong side of shady.

    It's coming to address bar/search bar later this year.. Don't really know how they're going to pull that off without it being annoying though.

    Personally I find such a thing pointless, I have about 4/5 tabs open on firefox each time, if google is one tab then I'll search for something and wander off to something else for a moment or two. Come back to it... so personally, I wouldn't use something like this.

    Good idea mind! Probably shave a few minutes off searching for stuff at work occassionally mind!

    I've read elsewhere that searches are popping up with all kinds of completely none relevant sites and wasting your time anyway because you spend those few seconds saved reading what other crap its come up with.

    Just a knee jerk reaction to Bing me thinks.....

    Over the last couple of months Ive been finding it harder to actually find what I want on google. Like looking for benchmarks on something and its not even in the right area or completely ignores keywords like the product name or in that example the word benchmark. It'll take more than a feature that saves me typing a couple of words to use google again. More like a re think of their search algorithm!

    I hate it, what next? Generating results from reading brainwaves. This is getting stupid. Sometimes a little autonomy is good for you.
