During the UXW09 it was defined that we only want to end up with one single "search box" (the one at the top right). So the "search" below the List-module should be gone too.
The idea was that the "global search" and the "page specific search" should be done from this central area, and the different search results grouped in separate tabs.
See this screen from back then:
This implementation seem to be missing or gone. Screenshot is grabbed from this page:
Maybe you find other interesting details from the concept back then.

I report here https://forge.typo3.org/issues/36231#note-3 the content of the comment to keep track of it:
Are there already ideas in the air about this topic?
Could we add a new keyword in the main search. We currently have #page, #content for filtering the scope of search. Could we add a "#this" to define the current page. Or does the keyword make it to geeky? Obviously, we will add this new keyword into the local help (the blue box - if you see what I am mean) for the sake of clarity for the End Users.
At the moment, the situation is as follows:foo -> will search all (configured) tables #page: foo -> will search in table "pages" #content: foo -> will search in table "tt_content"
Then we could add:#this: foo -> will search all (configured) tables on the current pid

- Status changed from Accepted to Closed
As this has been open for a long time and not prioritised I will close this now.
Some of the latest changes in this area:
- Results from page, list and top bar search all use the same view
- The module search always searches in the current context, the top search is "TYPO3 wide search" which is pretty clear to editors. I don't see a need to change that currently, as restricting the search with an additional keyword just makes it harder for an editor.
