Works in Internet Explorer 11, Chrome 65. Have not yet tested on Safari (macOS).

    That's a browser feature. DataTables doesn't listen for the escape key in the global search input. Escape clearing the input is something that is being done by the browser - example with no Javascript here.

    That would be one to report to Microsoft if you want parity between browsers there.
