You can type non-URL text into the Browse location field and web kit will realise it is not a valid url and will try a google search with it instead. Something for the release notes :)

Yes thanks for raising this Gary, is a good improvement over the old
gecko-based Browse, and just got a techy message in the release notes
"Normalize and autosearch url input.".  My fault.

We use exactly the same method as Epiphany to know if load an URL or
perform a web search.
