 Ever since i started using Tor Browser Bundle one thing irritated me.
 If I create a new tab, write "hello world" in the url bar, and hit return,
 I get a search on "hello world". But if I do the same and write just
 "hello", TBB takes it as being a website, and fails to access it. I think
 it should (could) look at the url and if it doesn't end in ".org" ".net"
 ".com" etc, it should be treated as a search.
 It's a nitpick, but a useful one for people who, like me, do a lot of
 searches and like to use the "new tab" shortcut.
