Ability to clear "search using" in just type preferences
Some websites will automatically bring up a notification to add them to the search feature inside just type (not sure why some sites do this and others don't)
There are two main problems.
#1 if you simply swipe to dismiss this notification, it still saves the site in the 'search using' menu, it just does not turn it on. That is rather presumptuous if you ask me. I would love it if someone could make a patch where swiping away the notification resulted in that webpage never being added to your 'search using' list in the fist place. That makes more sense to me
#2 once these sites are saved in your 'search using' list in the Just type preferences (which you currently can't prevent from happening) there is no easy way to get rid of them. This is a problem for a number of reasons
-privacy. it is basically a browsing history list you cant erase
-long lists. this list just continues to grow and I can see it, in the future being a pain in the **** to manage all of these sites that I have no interest in.
This post has some info:
How do you modify "Just Type" preferences?
but these are complicated, roundabout fixes that don't really fix everything and force you to delete info that can slow down you browser
I would LOVE a patch that would simply let me tap and drag away the entries that I don't want out of the 'search using' list in the Just type preferences
