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...

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.

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.
