I need to get out from under my rock more. I do not search from the address
bar, and never considered even trying. They give me a handy search bar, and
I tried several search engines, and fine that the results are generally the
same -- not always, but generally -- and I can find what I need from
whichever search engine I have going. I made a tab for three search engines,
and just open the tab and use the search box. I thought everybody did it
Like I said, I should get out from under this rock more often ...
