Indeed, if you're in a text entry field, there's a "GO" button to the
right of the space bar. Using that submits the form (same as when you're
actually typing a URL into the address field in Safari etc)


Agree though that it's not a good idea to rely on this, and having an
explicit submit button would be advisable
