Allow web search from address box akin to Chrome's Omnibox

Browse requires you to "return home" or type in the search site's URL before starting a new web search. It would be nicer if Browse provided an experience akin to the Chrome browsers Omnibox (http://dev.chromium.org/user-experience/omnibox ). A "?" bookmark keyword that goes to the default search engine might be a quick workaround (http://developer.mozilla.org/en/Bookmark_Keywords ).
