I do a lot of VB.NET programming - some for work but mostly for pleasure. I'm always Googling for VB help but find the latest browsers frustrating in that they do not retain the searched-for text when opening a new tab. Here's a typical scenario:

(IE9 or Chrome) Paul types in VB.NET angled text in the search/address bar.
Lots of interesting results returned - Paul clicks on one, says "mmm... pretty good. I'll keep that one open and look some more..."
Paul clicks to open a new tab and wants to search again for exactly the same text, but the search/address bar is now blank.

IE8, with it's separate search bar, used to work in exactly the right way for me, but IE9 and Chrome have lost that feature. Firefox does it OK but I generally prefer IE9 or Chrome for general browsing. I even added a separate Google search bar to IE9 but it also clears when a new tab is opened...

Am I missing something? I just need a really easy way to repeatedly search for the same text whilst opening new browser tabs.

I always right click and open the search results in a new tab. Then I can just click back to the original search page to try the next in the list if needed.

I like the idea of opening a new window with some cached search results though. Does Google have a suggestions box?

I think my chrome has the search text still there if I start typing...

Yea, it does. Not sure why yours doesn't, though.

What I normally do when I am searching, is I use the middle mouse button on links in the search results. That opens it up in a new tab automatically. That way if it's not what I am looking for, I can just close that tab and continue on the search results page.

Yea, it's still there if I start typing, but I was hoping to just click and search again. I guess IE9 with separate Google search bar is the nearest to what I want: after opening the new tab, click the dropdown arrow on the search and then click on the top item in the list (which is the last thing I searched for).
