Some of my pages have different languages. When I try to search the open double quotation marks exactly (U+201C), Chrome returns also (U+201D) and " (U+0022). What I do is to press Ctrl + F and input in the text box. I also notice search for A returns Ā and Ă.

You can do a search for in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quotation_mark to feel what I have suffered.

What is the reason for Chrome to have such a behaviour?


User-friendliness, probably. Chrome normalizes search query and searchable page contents. Most users don't see a difference between and ", when they want to search for they type in ". It's also easier to type because it's included in common keyboard layouts. Similarly, with my keyboard layout I can't type Ā. Thanks to that feature of Chrome I can just use A and get the same results.
