Update: Thanks for all your help with our Search UI testing - it's now come to a close.
Hello Community 👋
This year the Confluence Server team is working on improving Search. We're currently investigating two streams of work - one is engineering improvements, and the other is UI improvements to make things easier to find in Confluence.
For that second part, we would love your help to see if we're moving the design of search in the right direction. Try out what the new search might look like on your own Confluence instance, so you can give us your feedback.
If you use Confluence Server:
Don't worry about the greyed icon in your browser bar - if the search field on Confluence Server pages updates to say 'Search by keyword,' it's running.
As it's a prototype, there may be some design inconsistencies or bugs - if you need to go back to the old search, you can disable the extension by going to Window > Extensions > Uncheck the Enabled box. If you're using a theming plugin, the search prototype may not work.
Thanks for your help,
