This is improvement but I still feel the lack of a button. If I past a part
of a package name and want to go to the search result page I still need to
reach the keyboard just to press enter. Moreover this is quite
counter-intuitive as I have often looked if there was any button hidden
somewhere after the introduction of this suggestion feature.
