Firefox 33 offers an improved search experience through the location bar. Unlike to Chrome’s omnibox, Firefox has an address bar and search bar. When you search for a single word or number in the location bar, Firefox first looks up for that website, if not present, ‘unable to connect error page’ or search results will be displayed after a long delay. This no longer the case with Firefox 33 (currently in Aurora), search results will be displayed on average 5 seconds faster than before, Mozilla’s Jared Wein said in his blog.

At present, searches for query ending with a period, and Query containing a period in the middle, throws server not found pages, these two minor bugs needs to be fixed.
