Public bug reported:
Noticed while using a screen-reader - using "1" to skip to the level 1
header - it reads "link heading level 1", and nothing else.
It's image that says Google, it's used as the level 1 heading, and it
acts as a link to google.com. It should probably have an alt text of
That would also fix the appearance when "load images automatically" is
disabled (preferences -> content). A bit like the screen-reader, it
leaves you with less information that you should have - and also the
image is still there, as a link, so you get a mysterious patch of white
space that turns out to be a link if you move the cursor over it.
I think there are other possible improvements as well. There would
ideally be a label associated with the search text box, which the screen
reader would read to provide some context. You probably don't want just
"Google"; you want to say "Google search". (ARIA hint: aria-labelled-by
="id-of-google-image id-of-search-button" sounds cool).
