I wouldn't say the search box is useless. The fact that it exists in many modern browsers indicates people like it. There are some benefits actually in terms of usability. If you are just using the Seamonkey urlbar to run searches and you start to follow links you might have to type in your search query again. The search box doesn't change it allows the user to add to the query and rerun the search very quickly. The fact that people like the search box in Firefox and IE 7 says something about usability design. Not all features are designed for technical efficiency. Some feel right based on our past experiences.
