I'm using lots of Google tools and most of them have keyboard shortcuts -- but none of them work on Google Chrome. When I press keys (in Gmail, in Google Reader, etc.) then Chrome opens the in-page search box instead of invoking the shortcut action.
The same keyboard shortcuts work just fine on Firefox15 on the same Win7 computer.
I've looked in Chrome's settings (including the advanced settings) but I didn't see anything that looked relevant. I searched both SU and webapps.SE but found nothing. Ironically, Google can't answer this either.
How can I make Chrome send my keypresses to the webpage (Gmail etc.) rather than starting an on-page text search?
