@dpreacher whats the one for "fuck you thats not a valid domain name, I want to google this"
@notclacke @dpreacher I keep googling stuff like 3.4Kbps and get back a URL. In chromium you could just do ?3.4kbps and get a search always

I also don't think chromium accepted addresses for websites which weren't valid TLDs without http:// so 3.4kbps would always have been a google search

@kurisu @notclacke different design decisions. why one trumps the other in each company depends on so many things but mostly on the people who affect such decisions.

@dpreacher @notclacke there might even be an about:config to change it but fuck knows
