Really?? I have always wondered about that. I thought that Microsoft somehow
took control over http, which is a mistake I often make when setting up
re-directions (http already contained outside input text box).
I did know that Firefox makes use of Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky", but chose
to blame Microsoft instead. How did they get control over that term in the
first place? (H)eading (T)owards (T)oppling (P)eons? It definitely seemed
so when I ended up in their site.
