Sorry about that - I occasionally forget that not everyone is comfortable googling around a bit when they're interested in something. Hope this helps.
To me it's not a Q of comfort w/ Googling, it's a Q of efficiency: Why should every interested party have to re-invent & repeat the Google or other search that a link would have provided, when one person can do it once for everyone? It also allows the presentation of the most useful link -- something that Google results don't necessarily show.
Also, there will always be a few who will click on a link, but not bother to open a new tab & use a search engine.
BTW, Google is now my 3rd choice for checking out Free Software, I use freshmeat.net & the Wikipedia 1st, usually in that order. I believe that since Konqueror 3.5.8 all 3 have Location bar "Web" shortcuts.
