Phoenix rocks, but...

The most annoying feature in phoenix is keyword search.

1) There should be a option to disable it (or just make it default) (There is a search bar for searching, no?)

2) I get really pissed of when I type something localhost:8080 (testing) and it isn't running, so the next thing I get is a google search for localhost. This IMO needs to be fixed: no search if valid hostname found and there is network error. What's up with network error reporting anyway???

Thanks and continue with bloat removal ;)

3) If there are any non-alphanumeric characters (especially ':', '/', '@', '='), the string is definatelly not a keyword search.
