Mac OS X has a feature where if you use any search box in any app, it automatically overwrites every other search box with the text you searched.
I find this rarely useful and it often interferes with any workflow where I expect an individual app to stay pre-filled with what I last searched in that app. Is there any way to disable it?
(I've also never seen anyone discuss this feature anywhere. When was it introduced? Does it have a name? Is it mentioned anywhere in the documentation on developer.apple.com?)
