Re: another so called "barrier" to IDNs just disappears...

Searching for เกมส์.com is not the same as typing in เกมส์.com, especially with google's "did you mean" feature. I have seen it in action, google suggests the longer existing ascii equivalent and people just click the first search result without thinking too much. It can cause you to lose half or more of your traffic. Sucks, but true.

Type-ins happen without thinking. Nobody is going to do the copy/paste trick unless they are really desperate to get to that particular site, because that requires thinking and effort.

Don't get me wrong, the virtual keyboard is a great thing, but I don't see it helping type-ins in any way.
