Often, when I'm using the desktop client, I search for a song/album/playlist to play, start it, and go back to whatever I was doing. When I come back to search for a new thing, I click on the search box, and it always catches me off guard how it never selects all the information so that I can start typing a new song without deleting all information. That selection on focus is how most web browsers + mobile inputs do it iirc. This new behavior could trigger, for instance, after something in the search view is pressed to play until another piece of media is 'played', or even just every time the search box is unfocused. The idea for the latter is I don't think users often append to their query if they don't find anything. Thanks!
