Search Bar is Redundant
Very true, I read a research report the other day and they seemed to point in this same direction. Whenever, we invest in something useful, make sure it's accessible. That means it should be easily seen otherwise people will ignore or not even know it exists.
Some people like to search using Search Bar. When I asked why, one of it because it's easier to select one of their multiple (20+) search engines, than using/remembering nicknames (keywords in Firefox).
Nevertheless, Search Bar is on/off toggle in Chromium based browsers & remove able in Firefox.
BTW, welcome to forum.
