Address bar search

strange results

A friend pointed out a strange result when doing a search for "blue widgets my city" from the address bar. Instead of the google results page showing up, the browser goes directly to the number one site on Google.

Has anyone noticed this? And how do they do that?

You must be clicking on the "I feel Lucky" button.

ps I have my "search" set up to use Google for searches in the address bar.

pps if I type in "my city blue widgets" I get a regular search results page (with the website in question in the number 1 position)

If I type in "blue widgets my city" I get the single web page returned. Nothing different on the search except keyword order.
