Microsoft and HTTP

Why is it that when you search Google for “http”, Microsoft is the first result? I first stumbled upon this when clicking on a malformed URL in Firefox. Try it for yourself. Since Firefox fires off a Google search on URLs it doesn’t understand, every HTTP URL that doubles up on the “http://” part is sent to Microsoft by Firefox. This just seems wrong on some level.
