Some things become automatic very quickly, such as using Google Chrome’s winning Omnibox.

Just put @DanielPink’s new “Drive” on tiny list of books I believe EVERYONE would learn & benefit from immediately. Everyone. Seriously.
Of course, I went looking. I clicked on a visible open window from one of the web browsers I currently have running, entered my search term in the bar at the top of the window … and saw an error message:
This URL is not valid and cannot be loaded.
Well, thanks Camino. Was it you I called up?
I switched to Google Chrome and tried again. This produced results. Good ones.
Of course it’s not hard to enter a search term in a search box rather than an address box, but why do I have to bother to notice the difference?
In the couple of weeks I’ve been using it Google Chrome has taught me that there need only be one box.
After a couple of weeks use I’m extremely happy with Chrome, with the sole exception that the must-have password keeper 1Password isn’t yet integrated. That’s a huge stumbling point, that will be resolved before too long, I hope.
