Keyboard shortcuts for the navigation within the search box

At first: I love DDG! 

Well, pressing h after a search goes to the seachbox, that's fine.

But then I miss another keyboard shortcut for the navigation within the searchbox. The query in the box is selected completely, so if I want to add words for the next search I have to press home or end or any of the arrow keys, but in any case I have to move long ways on the keyboard. Would be nice to see a nifty shortcut, maybe ALT-h, that allows me to rapidly fit my query for the next search by deselecting the entry in the search box completely an positioning the cursor at the start. Or is there already one, maybe given from the OS?

Thanks, A.

I use up and down arrows instead of home and end for that purpose, but a new shortcut (to have the same effect as h, but without auto-select-all) might not be a bad idea too.

I've made an enhancement request for this!
