Prevent Google search from stealing keyboard focus

  • As ya guys all know, when on a google search page, anything you type on the keyboard gets redirect to search input. This makes single key shortcut on Opera useless and annoying. In firefox, there is a way to disable this keyboard focus per sites:

    user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "noinputfocus");
    user_pref("capability.policy.noinputfocus.sites", "");
    user_pref("capability.policy.noinputfocus.HTMLInputElement.focus", "noAccess");

    Does Opera have something similar ? or there is another way to deal with this problem ?

    P/s: right now, my simple solution is prevent 'some' google javascripts from loading. But that also disabled search suggestions/autocomplete 😞
