    When I type in google I have a full keyboard but if I switch to safari the space bar is missing.

    If you're referring to typing in a URL in Safari, there is no space bar because there are no spaces in a URL. The space bar is replaced by characters that could be used in a URL. The space bar does, however, appear when typing into Safari's search field (next to the URL field).

    Here's a screenshot of the keyboard that ardchoille refers to. Notice where the cursor is.

    Thank you for those screenshots. It is my opinion that Apple did a very good job of providing characters on an "as needed" basis.
