    When I type in "google.com"

    When I type in "google.com" into over yonder address bar, it redirects to google.com/ig! Is this because I am signed into Gmail, or because google is pushing their homepage thing now?

    I don't know. I just tried it and didn't have it do that. Are you sure you didn't just visit that site recently and it's automatically filling in as you type the address?

    I think its because a cookie is telling Google that you have an account there via gmail.

    It's part of google's new personalized page feature - I get that now that I have a gmail account and I'm cookie'd.
