It's not random. I hated it at first yesterday. It takes a few hours
of getting used to. The more I use it, the more it seems to pick the
result I want as the first result. I don't know if it's keeping track
of visit frequency or whether I'm just adapting to how it works (even
though I can't verbalize it). But, yes, it is called the "awesome
bar", and I don't really find it awesome.
