Currently hitting Tab goes to top-bar / side-bar options and then the first search result. Is there any such keyboard shortcut that will directly focus on search results?

  • @AlEverett Yes. Updated the title. – user13107 Oct 17 '12 at 4:29
  • When I hit tab in Chrome or Firefox I get to the first search result. Subsequent hits on tab bring me to the next result. – ale Oct 17 '12 at 16:03

    For me too in FF pressing Tab causes a small ► to show up to the left of the 1st search result, and then I can use the up/down arrow keys to move through the results list. – Karan Oct 17 '12 at 20:17
  • Tested on a clean profile of the latest stable release on Firefox - tab does focus to the first search result. It seems that an extension/preference is disrupting this behaviour. Try clearing all of your data (Ctrl+Shift+Del) and then try again. – Wk_of_Angmar Oct 19 '12 at 22:24

The shortcut F7 could be handy in this case. It will enable you to browse the page using keyboard

  • Sorry, doesn't seem to do anything. – user13107 Oct 17 '12 at 7:11

Browser update fixed it. Al Everett is correct. "When I hit tab in Chrome or Firefox I get to the first search result. Subsequent hits on tab bring me to the next result."

this feature is dropped now unfortunatly since Google Instant Search dropped , the closest thing I found to a solution was this answer.
