Disabling Google’s Autolink Feature

If you use Google’s Toolbar, you may have noticed an additional functionality — Autolink. Still in beta, if you click on this button, Google will link to an online map for the stated address. It can also link tracking numbers to delivery status and ISBN numbers to Amazon.com. The Autolink feature is turned off by default.
