We currently allow the user to turn off Internet Keywords from the Navigator > Smart Browsing pref panel. This appears to also turn off searching from the url bar. This pref is useless, because if you turn it off and enter a space-separated phrase in the urlbar, you just get an alert saying "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded." We should either: * remove the pref entirely * make this pref not control searches, which would give some utility to the pref The latter might be difficult since I think right now the decision to fallback to search is made on the server-side (i.e., we just pass phrases to info.netscape.com and it decides whether it's an Internet keyword or a search phrase). Since the pref is useless in it's current form, I say let's remove it.
