Under Linux and OS X the tab in when typing in the Chrome URL bar will set a search provider. So for instance,
wiki TAB will change the URL bar to a Wikipedia search, and then anything I type past that searches Wikipedia only.
But for some reason on my Desktop running Windows 7 using the Tab key when focus is on the URL pops the focus down to the browser.
I am running Chrome 9.0.597.98. Is this a known issue with the Windows version? Or do I have something mis-configured?
Seems like something is up with Chrome install, I've tried disabling all my extensions and clearing out my personal data, but to no avail. Is there any reliable way to remove all Chrome data and configuration and start fresh?
Two threads I found related to this issue, the popular solution of hitting space before tab is not working for me.
