Recently I've been getting the message on the bottom left on Google whenever I press Ctrl + L to put focus the omnibar ("Press / to jump to the search box").

message "Press / to jump to the search box" on Google

While the animation only slightly annoys me, I would like to turn off this message if easily possible.

Apart from using an adblocker to remove it, is there a setting to do this?

  • Ironic: I use a German keyboard which doesn't even have a / key (you need to press Shift + 7, which does not let me jump to the search bar) and I'm getting this message in the German version of Google as well despite of this.

  • It prevents my normal Vimium bindings from working, making this a deal breaker for using google search. Jan 18, 2022 at 1:08
