Google stealing the browser focus is dangerous to the Internet.

Why? You ask?
Have a read: http://www.digit4l.net/2010/02/failbook/.

Because Google are doing this, I believe that they are helping phishing attacks because people who don’t really understand the Internet will just type the domain name or site they want to visit into the Google search box.

This is incredibly dangerous when you stop and think for a moment: watch your sister try to visit her bank website and see if she types “Natwest” into the Google search box.
I’ll leave it at that…
