It would at the least be a nice g-conf option. 

C-l, then typing a search query is very simple. 

Reaching over to the tiny arrow keys on my laptop and hitting the down
arrow navigating past the auto-complete guesses to select "google
search" every time (or worse, using the mouse) is the sole reason I
joined this list. I've lurked for a few weeks hoping it would be a
matter of discussion and browsed the archives before joining -- I should
have checked bugzilla.

Does the "I'm feeling lucky" add any value whatsoever to Epiphany
outside of novelty? Do the HIG or libs prevent the tab key from being
bound here as it is in Moz and nearly every other browser I've ever
used? Do the HIG or libs cause the up-arrow to act exactly like the
down-arrow instead of cycling to the bottom of the list? Does my lists
"search the web" and "search google" both going to google reflect a
Mozilla configuration that results in two entries with different labels
that perform the same action or is it Epiphany wide?

I like the browser enough as a whole to continue using it as my go-to --
just curious what the thoughts are behind these decisions.

I apologize if this is should be bug traffic and not list traffic.
