Where does your autocomplete take you in your web browser A-Z?

Not sure what the basis for this is but when I start typing in a Web address in Safari on my laptop(s), the system attempts to autocomplete the address.  Useful in many cases.  A bit annoying in others.  So I decided to see where autocomplete takes me for each letter of the alphabet.  Not sure how often this changes or that the basis for it is ...but it does say something about sites I visit often.  A bit scary that so many of these are from goggle .. but they do run the world I suppose ...
