On cm7 there is search softkey for statusbar but never in my time with cm7 did I enable it,seems a bit pointless when you either have search bar widget or one click of browser opens google ;)

Use mine all the time. It's not just for Google, but for in app search too.

I'd hate to have a phone without it (native ICS, I'm looking at you).

What apps do you need to search inside of? I'm thinking maybe music apps? I've had a few android phones with it but not ever used it once.

I know people who still do this, to get to a website, on Desktop PCs:

Open browser >> Enter name of site into Google >> click applicable site, to get to it

Amusing as anything ^_^

I never used Google toolbars...

You can use it to perform basic functions aswell, I sent a text to my sister with the voice search was pretty funny.

I used to use mine all the time and modded it back on the Galaxy Nexus!

I use mine for searching and also for switching wifi on and off (via a wifi toggle assigned to long press on the search button).

I really missed it on my SGS2.

I have never ever used it except for when I have accidentally pressed it once or twice. Never really seen the point in it tbh.

If you started off with the Search button you find your self using it all the time!

I guess. The only android I previously had with a search button was my HTC Wildfire, but I never used it on that either. To me it's totally superfluous.

So I've had a One X for a little while, and it turns out I don't miss the search button as much as I expected.
