enterkeyhint attribute

This is interesting for small screen devices: the enterkeyhint attribute on form elements lets you specify a label for the “enter” key on virtual keyboards. It has been available since autumn 2019 (iOS, Android + Chromium) and Firefox now supports it too. If I understand it correctly, it automatically localises based on the users OS language

Description on MDN; article (with some screenshots) at CSStricks

One very obvious usecase: those typical search forms where the submit button is omitted or hidden.

I don’t think so [*]. The search field(s) already automagically get a search label virtue of their type. Other forms, I don’t think, based on some light testing. I could be wrong, as I just started exploring that attribute.

[*] it is a bit unfortunate the way it works, at least in Safari (iOS15), where the next label would just jump to the next required field by jumping “over” non-required fiels in between, but the little arrow-buttons (the “tab” buttons/keys) at the top of the keyboard work correctly. That would otherwise be useful to help the user navigate from field to field (as an alternate “tab” key so to speak).
