According to comment 30 in bug 1368555, we should implement new value searchfield-cancel-button which behave like Chrome's searchfield-cancel-button (rendering a "X" cancel icon).
It seems there is no native cancel button in Cocoa [1][2], we would have to draw it ourselves...

Not sure my understanding is correct... Mats what do you think?

This is not so urgent for now.

<input type=search> has a cancel button inside it in Safari.
Not sure if they actually use Cocoa to draw it though.
We could look in the webkit/blink source I guess.
