[Request] Website name included in search

A request to make it similar to FF3's search. Avant only searches an URL, not the name. I would love to have it search both.

Thanks.

I don't understand. A search engine works the same regardless of the browser.

It isn't the search engine, but the feature improvment of the current "Search for similar websites while you type", like Firefox 3's Awesome bar. When you enter a thing like: avant in Avant, only URL's containing avant will be found, but if the URL is www.bestbrowser.com, 'avant' wont be found. In Firefox, if the website www.bestbrowser.com is called "Homepage for Avant Browser", it will show as you type.

So you mean the autocomplete feature in the address bar.

Hold on though... Avant does this already, I just checked. I typed unprofessional and neowin.net appeared in the list.

Yeah... it does #-o

[EDIT] Capital letters makes a difference. Possibly here I screwed up ^^ Well, then I'm requesting that Avant threats capital letters as were they not. But do I need a new thread for that?
