Fuck websites that capture the '/' key to focus on their own search input. I want to search the page, not the site.

(Or maybe I should instead lament the sad state of Tridactyl, in that it can't/doesn't prevent this behavior)

@ayo agh, yes. I hit this on github and a few other sites. sometimes hitting esc and then / again works, sometimes I have to go into the hamburger menu and just select "find in this page". Awful.

@brad @ayo just tested this out on Firefox with Vimium-FF, it seems to override Github's / keybinding (although Vimium uses it's own search thing, not Find in Page).

@ayo

while we're swearing at the web, fuck sites that show up in search results and all they have is a search bar of their own and "no results found". particularly lyrics sites that pretend they have a particular lyric. but they don't. because they are fucking liars.
