It drives me CRAZY that I have to use the mouse to get to the search input. Is there a shortcut for it? I didn't find one in the documentation.
Back when Safari had a separate input for search, I believe the shortcut was ⌘K. I know that's still the shortcut in Firefox. That would be my vote!
p.s. Is basic auth coming to chrome anytime soon? AAAAARRRRGGHH!!!!
