why does konqueror need every website to start with http://?

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all, I've grown accustomed to using konqueror, and i like it's speed. Firefox on kde is slightly sluggish and consumes much more memory. Now to the problem: If i type a website address in konqueror, for example, Google, it comes up with an error message. It expects me to put in Google. Is there any way to make this default in konqueror? For example, in firefox i just type in google or Google. (Distributions)
