Awesomebar oddness

Those of you with long memories for AdamW-related trivia may remember that, when Firefox 3 first came out, I hated it with a passion, mainly because of the Awesomebar. These days, though, I rather like it - they made it fast enough that the "click one entry, get another" bug doesn't really happen often enough to be annoying, and it is pretty useful. However! It still has its little foibles. The one I noticed today: if I type just 'pl', Planet GNOME shows up top of the list, Planet Fedora is second. If I then add an a, so it's 'pla', they switch over - Planet Fedora's at the top, Planet GNOME is second. How's that make sense, then?!

I'm not 100% sure, but it probably knows which entry you have picked before when you just entered 'pla'. I think it's good thing to have. For example for i wanna use only 'l', but there are some other sites starting with l too and i use them more than, so to get to them i enter more letters. I hope you understand what i meant :)

Perhaps when you type 'pl' you more often go to planet gnome and when you continue to type 'pla' you more often go to planet fedora....

ofaurax: yeah, that's probably it. Still not quite what I'd expect, but I see why it happens.
