The bug report discussion ended in a "dontfix" so I'm sad to write you won't be happy.

I have a very weird question:
My default browser on my Mac is Google Chrome, and my default search engine is Google, according to my settings. It is the search engine that is meant to do predictive searches, etc., in my address bar. For every single search I do, things are just fine.
Only, just now, I searched for the word "endocrine" and accidentally wrote "endocrine/" It thought I was trying to go to a webpage, but it redirected me to this link: http://searchguide.level3.com/search/?q=http%3A//endocrine/&r=&t=0
That link up there is a search engine that is meant to be malware, or something, and everything I have read said that you simply need to remove the extension allowing it. Only, I don't have any extension allowing it, the only extensions I have are DevonThink, Hola Better Internet, a few Google drive related ones, and Zotero connector.
I am on Mac OS X El Capitan, 10.11.5, and Chrome 5.1
Is this search result happening because Google simply thinks, for some reason, that this is the website where I would like to go? Or do I have malware connected to my Chrome browser? It looks like anytime I do a search ending in a slash (/), it redirects using this Level(3) search engine, but anytime I do another search, it's fine.
