With Firefox, if you type in the phrase "widget words" you will go to the top google result for the phrase, or to widgetwords.com

Has anyone purchased domains and built a strategy based on this fact, and what have you have found the results to be?

While this may be the case you will probably find that firefox users loathe parking pages and will not click.

Maybe less so if firefox bacame mandatory with AOL, but at the moment firefox users usually know what parked domains are.

No, the URL would redirect to an appropriate relevant sponsor or be an actual content site. I'm wondering if there's a source somewhere that counts and tracks type-in counts.

I think firefox users have a better idea what's going on, and are less likely to use this feature the way AOL or some other users would. Paying very much to find out strikes me as a reach, but if you try, I'd love to hear what happens!
