G+ Got An Edge?

So in chrome, I select the address bar and I type :
in the drop-down bar, www.facebook.com is an option. So I think to myself, and reboot the computer into my linux distro - with Chrome installed, that ONLY I use.. Then I lLoad up chrome. I type www, and guess what?
I also get www.facebook.com as an option
This is neat an all, but I don't have a facebook account. Why does chrome give me this as an option, always?
Firefox don't do this to me. It gives me the sites I visit most often.... Does Chrome WANT you to visit www.facebook.com for some reason? Maybe so Google can see what you do there? Tin-Hat going on!

Firefox is set to the default with Location Bar of: History and Bookmarks.
Not sure what the omnibox searches, but it don't seem to be my history or bookmarks, yet sites I visit often come up with a keypress. Pressing f don't get any link to facebook, but www does. Strange.

......under the bonnet,
uncheck "Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar" and it will turn that off
I suspect that most people that type www, go to facebook, which kinda goes to show you....... nah I won't even get into it.

I dont know... I just assumed they all said that, somehow I ended up with a UK version of chrome?
I have been running it since its initial beta release, which it just keeps updated on its own. I can't say I ever noticed when it changed on me, maybe I will just change it to the french version instead.
At least I said wrench instead of spanner
