    In the previous version of Safari, I'd type in "macrumors" and it would automatically take me to macrumors.com. Same with "amazon" -> amazon.com, "ebay" -> ebay.com, etc. Now that they've integrated the address bar with the search bar, typing "macrumors" takes me to a google search page (unless macrumors.com is already in my saved history).

    Is there any way to get that feature back? Or a keyboard shortcut to automatically add in the .com/.net/.whatever (like in firefox, you can push command+return, or in Windows/Firefox/IE its CTRL+enter)?

    Unless you're actually searching why not just use bookmarks. The menu bar ones are really handy.

    I agree with you and have not found a way to bring this back, even with a KB shortcut. Closest is if you start typing "apple" you can use the down arrow key to scroll down to "Go to site..."

    I do use bookmarks (and the bookmark bar). I'm talking about the sites I dont have bookmarked.

    There doesnt seem to be a solution to this yet. Hopefully theyll fix it in the next update.

    I've noticed that the universal bar also pops up your history, so if I type 'macrumors' all I have to do is arrow down to 'macrumors.com' before hitting enter.
