While the toolbar to the side is an interesting idea, I find it much better the way Galeon does it. There is a "URL" and "SMART URL" field in the bookmark editor; the URL is activated by pressing the favicon, while the SMART URL is similar in functionality to the keyword search. Basically, entering, say, "http://everything2.org/index.pl?node=%s" automatically creates a resizable entry field (with a favicon or text button) in a special "Smart Bookmarks Toolbar". It is possible to have any number of search engines in it--it acts just like the Bookmarks Toolbar, but with entry fields that send input to %s. I think this is a good replacement for both the small, dynamically selectable search item on the normal toolbar, and the keyword search, and the numerous extensions that provide this. It's handy for, say, Debian users to have a smart bookmark of "http://packages.debian.org/cgi-bin/search_packages.pl?keywords=%s", as opposed to relying on the limited functionality provided by extensions. I would imagine it wouldn't take too much work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Launch Galeon, look at smart bookmark toolbar. 2.Launch Phoenix, look at its absence. 3.Compare. Actual Results: I saw that Phoenix did not have this. Expected Results: Implemented a simple smart bookmark toolbar.
So let's get this straight: you want to scrap Firebird's established search interfaces in favour of the Galeon smart toolbar concept? Despite your statement that various extensions and existing core elements already provide this functionality? Since this is basically asking the devs to scrap their established design concepts for a completely different interface that can be added via an extension, I'm going to just mark this one WONTFIX.
