Navigation vs Searching on the Internet

Its a pet peave of mine, mostly exploited by browser authors, but searching on the Internet is NOT the same thing as navigating to a website. Follow this story. You’re talking to a friend, and you ask him or her to goto “mobileapps.com”. And they do this:

And this is SEARCHING for the website mobileapps.com
Then they get search results:

That takes the user directly to the website they want (after all, that is what talking about in this story example “goto” the website mobileapps.com.

This drives me nuts. I suppose its just the Internet, but this seems like a pretty easy concept. </rant>
