Instead, it will pass the value to the search engine. This is bad. Most certainly not the desired behavior when launching a new domain.
The problem is not that "browsers not aware of a TLD", it is that they are having a problem with the right-to-left conversion in that name. For example, using another ccTLD IDN such as xn--4gbrim works fine. Firefox works correctly when you enter the non-existent "nic.xn--4dbrk0ce", but Safari and Chrome fall back to search. All three work fine when entering the non-existent "nic.xn--4gbrim".
