When I type into the Safari address bar:

  • m
  • ma
  • map
  • maps
  • maps.
  • maps.g
  • maps.go
  • maps.goo
  • maps.goog
  • maps.googl
  • maps.google
  • maps.google.
  • maps.google.c
  • maps.google.co

at no point does it autosuggest the obvious result I want maps.google.com, which visit several times per day.

In contrast, if I search maps.yahoo.com or maps.bing.com and maps.yandex.ru, websites that I never visited before, they all show the full URL.

I have DuckDuckGo as my search provider.

  • Not sure, but the URL is google.com/maps not maps.google.com

  • @Ezekiel - it is once it 'arrives', but not as it 'sets off' - here it is after just typing 'm' i.stack.imgur.com/bv7Mr.png

    Well yes, but my point is that (as Mr. Ming pointed out), maps.google.com redirects to google.com/maps with a 302 MOVED which would logically remove it from suggestion lists.

When I access maps.google.com, it redirects to www.google.com/maps, maybe that is the reason.

However, you can:

  1. Add www.google.com/maps to your bookmarks (Cmd+D)
  2. Open your bookmarks (Cmd+Opt+B) and find Google Maps - https://www.google.com/maps
  3. Select Edit Address... from the context menu, and set the address to https://maps.google.com/

Then, open a new tab and type maps, and the maps.google.com should appear.

  • Cool, thank you. This makes it autocomplete for me after maps.g. Also deleted some of my browser history and got it to work for map. Safari will learn, since this is a top site I visit. Aug 26, 2022 at 16:53
