Description arne folkestad 2007-03-08 08:58:11 UTC
When opening the Wikipedia main page,, my intention in
99% of the cases is to search for an item. I guess this is the same for most/all
users. Therefore, it would be very convenient if the cursor was automatically
positioned in the search field, so that the user could start typing the search
string right away, without first having to click with the mouse in that field.
