Accessibility. On front page I can't move focus away from the "your email" box.

    Hi Mihkel,

    I see what you're saying. Although hitting Escape is what 2 million people use to activate the search box. Are you able to activate vimium via a different keyboard shortcut while in WorkFlowy?

    Google doesn't us it to activate search. Could you link to a large vendors who do? Your page is the first larger platform that I've seen where I've gotten stuck.

    I'd have to give it a custome mapping for workflowy. If it's a problem for me I'm sure it's also a problem for people who use https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/

    As a developer myself I'd expect Escape to remove focus. Like it does in Google.

    Hi Mihkel,

    I understand exactly what you're saying about Escape... it's just that we've used it for a decade and our users are accustomed to it. It's not likely to change because people would not be happy :-(
