I might be a bit daft, but there's a very big difference in my 
techy-education with typing in URL's versus the regular people who 
just type something into an input field. Most browsers and/or 
applications will work very differently when getting the input of 
"<something without dots>" vs "<something with dots>" vs "<something 
that could be url-sh>", often application version, user-settings and 
OS make/model/version are the behavioral differentiators... :(

Kind regards,
