#uxfail of the moment

I've switched to using Safari on my work machine for lunch hour stuff. Its location bar isn't as smart as Chrome's, so I end up getting the Google headlines on international soccer a lot, since "fa" is enough for Chrome but not Safari to jump to "fa"cebook.

Looking more closely... "fa" is enough to trigger facebook for both, but for Safari , the enter key means "go to whatever you think this box says RIGHT NOW" while for Chrome it will run the autocomplete and THEN go, so if I just type "fa[return]" Chrome feels like it is getting things right, and Safari does not.  #uxfail
