Keylogger on browser when typing URL
It seems that every key typed in the URL field on the browser is sent to Google (which returns search suggestions).
We should check if it's also the case on the keyboard when suggestions are enabled.

There is now a settings in the privacy preferences to enable the search suggestions when typing in the URL field. It is disabled by default.
I also checked that the keyboard won't ask Google suggestions. As a matter of fact, it doesn't.
