Re: I've largely changed my mind about Chrome, I like it muchmore now
I see no way that it saves a keystroke. If you are in a web page, you still have to move to the address bar with control l. If you open a new tab or window, you are automatically placed in the address bar so you can just start typing. What was in the address bar is automatically removed because it is highlighted. So, control t, type search, look for the result you want, and press enter. Control n, type search, look for the result and press enter. Or, control l, type search, look for the result, and press alt enter. No difference in keystrokes. I addressed a possible reason for speed differences in my previous message but I see no difference other than that possible one.

Not to split hairs, but it's a new tab (which loads faster AFAIK) not a new window.
It still saves you a keystroke per search - assuming you want the search results in a new tab. Also, if you accidnetally search from the wrong tab it helps loads.
