Using Google Chrome (16.0.912.41 beta specifically), when I modify the parameters to the URL in the address bar, Chrome sometimes performs a Google search for the string instead of going to the URL the string represents.

For example, I use Trac on an internal network and access it through Chrome. If I'm on a track ticket at this URL: http://trac/project/ticket/1287 (the URL strips off the http and all that is visible in the URL is trac/project/ticket/1287) If I want to quickly go to a different ticket, I just change the 1287 to the ID of the new ticket. I change the 1287 to 1288 and press enter and Chrome takes me here: instead of going to http:// trac/project/ticket/1288, which is what I intended.

How can I tell Chrome that when the address bar contains the string "trac/project/ticket", go to that URL and do not perform a search?
