Default Trivia: Weird behavior in Chrome

I don't know if it's Chrome or if it's Windows 10, probably chrome. Some
strange behavior lately. But this one takes the cake...

On YouTube. In the search field (text box). This is the text...

MKron intitle:intitle:T-i8

As you can see, the term "intitle:" is incorrectly repeated.

So, I highlight the first iteration of "intitle:". I begin to click and
drag that highlighted text to the beginning of the line, so that it will
end up immediately in front of the first word "MKron".

After dragging that incorrectly placed iteration of "intitle:" to the
beginning of the line, after releasing mouse button, somehow magically
the line changes into this...

downloadMKron intitle:T-i8

Yep. Somehow the incorrectly placed iteration of "intitle:" changes to
"download" when it is dragged to the beginning of the line.

The same weirdness repeats after doing an Undo.

I have seen weirder behavior in Windows, but had never seen that one.
I know a lot about Windows input and output, been using
macroing/scripting for decades, but doubt it's related. I do not know
where the word "download" came from. Do not recall recently copying it.

MKron intitle:intitle:T-i8

If both iterations are highlighted... "intitle:intitle:" and
dragged, they change to "intitle_"...

intitle_MKron T-i8

Unless it has something to do with my Almighty Chrome extension
Stylebot or with voice-activated scripting, it is probably
repeatable on anyone else's machine (in Chrome).

Doesn't happen in Firefox.

Adding another word with a colon after it...

MKron dog:intext:intitle:T-i8

Dragging "dog:" does the same...

downloadMKron intext:intitle:T-i8

Apparently it has to do with the colon.

Highlighting and dragging multiple "words:" produces other weird
results. Weird but not that interesting.

When the browser is full of features, and the
controls don't work, just about anything could happen.

Any time you see an "input box" on the screen, the input
box could be "dumb" or "intelligent" or "interactive".
Watch for LED blinks on your network interface, to see if what
is rendered in the box, is being drawn by the website
itself. As a hint there is lots of stuff going on
at the same time.
