I really don't find it all that strange that people type searches into a search engine box first. But maybe that's because that's what I do.
My home page is set to a search engine, so when I bring up my browser window, it's just as easy to initially type in the search bar what I'm looking for, even if it's a specific website, if I'm looking to buy something. It's not like people are then going back to the search engine to research for another product at that particular website.
