Chrome's Being a Dick


For the past few years, I've gotten used to tapping F6 and typing the first couple of letters of a website.
soc = Socoder, aga = AGameAWeek, tw = Twitter, fa = Facebook, gm = GMail, jo= Jo Mallozzi's blog, etc.

But. Since, I think yesterday, maybe a couple of days, the fucking thing has started to do Google Searches instead of going to the topmost website result.
My Google Activity list sees me searching for "FA Cup", "AGA cookers", "GM - General Motors" and "SOC - System on a Chip", repeatedly, because Chrome isn't doing what the fuck it's supposed to be doing.
Frustrating as hell.

I might switch to Firefox..
*shock*

But, what else is a good browser?
What do you all use?

That doesn't actually change the functionality of the address bar, though, it's just a different button, and in this case it's two buttons instead of one... What's THAT solving?!!..

*wonders*
.. does it?!
*checks*

No, no it doesn't. It's exactly the same broken address bar.


It "knows" I want to go to the BarItalia forum, but instead chooses to make "Bar - Google Search" the default selected option.
