IE took me to a Google results page
Firefox took me directly to a website
Can anyone explain how this works, how long this has been so, whether there is any way it can be exploited e.g. ensuring my site comes up when users type search terms into the address bar on firefox?
The page that came up was in pos 3 on Google, nowhere on Yahoo! and a different page from the same site in pos 1 on MSN
I'm surprised IE takes you to Google and I'm curious as to how Firefox decides what site to take you to
Anyone have any ideas?
I'm assuming it's based on various toolbars and whatnot that come with browsers these days. I don't see a setting where you can manually change this...within firefox, at least.
Through some experimentation Firefox will only act this way if the keywords are specific. If you search something vague then it will show a regular Google search.
This brings you right here!
Then type: "color"
And you'll see that it will bring up a google search for color [google.com]
