There is an interesting discussion going on IXDA group on “the death of buttons, google killed them”. It shows a known yet non-discussed approach towards google’s “enter” key used to search keywords instead of using search “button” on google. Pritam Pebam has initiated this talk and its really taking it to an interesting and different point of views regarding the same topic.

Though i think i mut mention one point here, that might not agree with what Pritam says, is “the enter key press may be relevant to tech savvy users, but when it comes to non tech savvy users, they really need the search “button”, i have live examples infront – is my dad. Also sometimes the auto suggest is irritating for them as they do not come to browse on net, but they have a specific and focused requirement and they feel irritated when unnecessary auto suggest feature comes along”

But really nice going & worth reading discussion.
