That's a tad over dramatic isn't it? Typosquatting is a problem, sure,
some of it is annoying, sure. Never has my derrier exploded though from

Perhaps part of the 'safe manner' is actually teaching people that using
their favorite search engine to locate 'fobar tool enterprises' is often
more productive than '' placement in the 'location bar'
is? Just like learning how to use a phonebook instead of random dialing,
or encyclopedia's as opposed to blind searching of the dewey decimal
