I agree with the idea of search being hidden by default. However I would like 
to suggest slash ("/") as shortcut. It is default shortcut for incremental 
search in both Firefox and Konqueror (an possibly many other apps), and I 
tried it without thinking many times so far in lyrics browser. Maybe a 
combination of both Ctrl+F and / (like in Firefox) should be used?
