Overview

Press Tab to quickly access the main search bar or search field of any website. No need to use your mouse! Autofocus available!

You hate taking your hand off the keyboard all the time only to access the search bar of the website you’re visiting? You’d love to simply press Tab or a custom shortcut to focus the search field and start typing right away without ever using your mouse? “Search Box Focus” solves exactly these problems. It also comes with an “Autofocus” feature which allows you to access the search bar automatically without pressing any shortcuts. Simply activate it for websites where you do a lot of searching like Amazon or online dictionaries. Whenever you load a website that has “Autofocus” enabled or when you switch to it from another tab, you’ll find that the cursor is already in the search bar ready for you to start typing. The extension is completely free and open-source which means, no tracking or data collection. No ads! After installation, make sure to reload/refresh all open tabs before using the extension! Feel free to suggest new features, report bugs, and so on at: https://github.com/gignupg/Search-Box-Focus Credits: “Search Box Focus” mainly uses the search box detection code of this Github repository: https://github.com/CodeRevver/Focus-First-Input The extension icon can be found at: https://icons8.com/icon/48167/google-web-search

Amazing extension but I need more flexible on shortcuts options not only Ctrl and Alt. Thanks

Pretty great extension. However, I wish I would be able to disable it for specific websites in which it doesn't work as intended. For example when I press tab in Google Sheets (the shortcut for jumping to next column) the cursor automatically jumps to the "rename" sheet tab, which disrupts my workflow completely.

Hey Mads, Thanks for your review! It's actually possible to disable the tab functionality for specific websites. Just click on the Search Box Fox icon on the website where you want to disable the tab functionality (in your case, Google Sheets). This will open a menu where you can disable the tab functionality for the website you're on. I hope this helps!
