This addon is fantastic! For students who use Anki for note-taking and as a study database, it is really handy to be able, in one keystroke, to open the add box (in order to create new cards during the study process) and the Browser (for quick searches, for example). You've done something I've always wanted to see in Anki; your work has helped me a lot, my friend.

Wonderfull add-on !
But careful, the shortcut for creating a new note is ctrl Shift Q (not ctrl Shift W)

Thank you !
