Thanks for feedback. I improved the url detection a bit. Now it
considers input as url if it has dot and doesnt contain spaces. It
also considers "localhost" as url. Now the search string can contain
dots if it also contains spaces. DNS search domains could be solved
with DNS query but i think that would increase latency a bit.

It would be nice if this patch could be added to
