Actually it does take you to google, and then uses the Google's
"Feeling Lucky" api, and takes you to the site which is the first hit
in the result set. You can run a sniffer and verify that it is going
out to Google.

this is the expected behaviour. :-)

"http/anything.com" (type that as is) redirects to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP when I do with a Firefox. Isn't 
it supposed to take us to google or the default search engine we have enabled for the site.

Sorry if the question is lame.
