Pros & Cons of Google search & URL search
Search Google or type URL is something you type when your life is going nowhere and you have so little going on that you have to type something so worthless. It might also be typed when someone is really bored and on the verge of crossing the plane of existence into an infinite pit of boredom.
It could also refer to a feature in google chrome’s canary update. Chrome Canary, like the legendary canary, lowered into mines to early-detect dangerous gases, is a leading-edge version of the Chrome browser. Google uses it to test out ideas, and one idea in the new Chrome 36 version of Canary is to bury the full URL into the top-level domain name. Even navigating within the site shows only the site name.
The field that some still call the “address bar” was changed to be more properly known as the Omnibox, reflecting the ability in Chrome (and Firefox) for users to type a search term into that box and get Google results, as well as to input a URL.
When only the top-level domain is showing in Canary’s Omnibox, you can still see the full URL by clicking the “origin chip” button – that is, on the domain name itself.

Since the update in 2014 Google has further changed the appearance of the Omnibox so as to now display the full URL and also function as a search bar.
