"My wife, who uses Google search as a nav bar"
She is not alone.
I was at a customer's office last week and he did the same thing with Bing when I was trying to show him how his site ranked on Google.
When I said, "that's where it appears on Bing" he said, "I don't have Bing", (completely unaware of the difference between a search box and an address bar or that Bing was the default search on his Win7 / MS-IE / Windows Explorer / browser / search bar all-in-one-thingamabobber).
