Autofocus on the search box

4 years, 10 months ago




So there I was... Searching for contact after contact.

This was causing me to use my mouse to keep clicking on the search box to type in a new name.

That got old. Really fast.

From now on, anytime you are viewing your contacts you can just start typing and hit enter to perform a search. Once the results are shown you can then press TAB to go to the first result and press ENTER or RETURN to view/edit the address.

Note that this is making use of an HTML5 attribute so if you are using an old web browser... You are missing out :)
