Except if I have a keyboard with a non-US layout... :\

@z3ux There's a fix for this already in development, soon you'll be able to bind the hotkey to any key combination on your keyboard! It won't only be bound to the backtick key.

@z3ux @ch_mandel
Thundertick has been updated to v1.5.0!
You can now set a custom hotkey for launching thundertick by going into it's chrome options page. You can access the settings page by right clicking on the thundertick icon in your chrome toolbar and clicking the `options` button!
This should resolve the problems people, with alternate keyboard layouts, have been facing.

@manak_ @ch_mandel I'll give it a try.

Search doesn't seem to find anything I'd expect from open tabs, either by tab title or content. Is it possible that it's still indexing, @manak_ ? I did restart the browser. The options menu item is also grayed out.

@joostschuur Hey Joost, that's actually really odd. Are you sure you began your search query with 't' to search through open tabs? A more detailed help cheatsheet is available via the 'help' command.

@manak_ It didn't occur to me I had to prefix it with t. Didn't notice that as part of any onboarding and it wasn't intuitive at all. As a spotlight user, I've built up muscle memory thinking I can just start typing away without a special prefix.

It does work when I start with t though. Really wish it wouldn't require that though. I'll probably run into this problem over and over again.

@joostschuur Hmm you're right, the prefix is abit unnatural as one expects results when they start typing. I am going to explore my options about how to solve this, but most likely it's going to involve getting only 1 or 2 searchers working when there's no prefix like maybe bookmarks and open tabs?
