At first this add-on somewhat puzzled me, as I thought why would anyone want to remove a Search button? Then I realized, it's beauty was in it's simplicity. By removing the Search button, users are guided towards the (ever-present) Search box. Less clutter and more functionality! Yet another simple, but genius add-on from AndyB.
Does exactly what it says. Great Add-on! Worked with my theme and de-clutters the nav bar. Easy install.
Love it. Removes confusion and simplifies it.
Easy as pie.. love that its a plugin and is easily re enabled..
