Is it possible to remap certain keyboard shortcuts (most notably: 'ctrl-f' to '/' in order to invoke the search) in chrome? If so, how?
Sadly, there doesn't appear to be an easy way to do it.
Googling turns up mention of a "Shortcut manager" extension, but it appears to be incompatible with the later versions of chrome.
I agree with your frustration - I'm always trying to search with '/'.
