New update removes search button from bottom toolbar

android

#1

Description of the issue:
The new update removes the search button from the bottom toolbar. This actually makes it more difficult to use the app with just a thumb since there’s no way to type URLs or search without having to reach all the way up to the address bar.

I already had Chrome Duet enabled in chrome://flags, and it had the search button on the bottom toolbar before this update. Chrome Browser also still has the search bar when Duet is enabled.

I expect people use the search button to avoid reaching up to the address bar a lot more than they use the bookmark or home button, but maybe that’s just me.

Please return the search button to the bottom toolbar or allow us to choose. (Or move the address bar to the bottom of the screen.)
