Safari 4 launch - interesting result

Safari 4 just out, hot sites page looks fantastic.

Anyway, tried just pasting a keyword, "เกมส์" obviously, straight into the address bar, and good golly, got taken straight to our site.

Has Safari always auto-appended .com to keywords input into the address bar, or is this a Safari 4 feature?

If this has always happened with Safari, shouldn't there be a boost in traffic in countries with big Safari penetration (presuming there are any), similar to the supposed Opera-effect in Russia?

No, firefox picks the first result in google ..... I knew that, I've used ff for 4 years now.

Have you been on a different planet for the last 2 years? I thought I had mentioned our site name *way* too many times :p

Re: Safari 4 launch - interesting result

I'm using Safari 3.2.1 and it sent me to http://www.เกมส์.com/. So, seems like it's been there and we just didn't notice. May have been in one of those critical updates.

Well one can be sure that will be over-ridden in versions for China - lol... wonder if Korea and Japan will do the same eventually
