I have a theory about this. It's likely that a lot of people have Google (or any other search enghine) as their home page and never heard of "Address bar". Instead they enter "Vodafone" or "Telecom" into the search field on their home page, hit enter and click on the first name (or one of the top) in the results page.
Last week Google went around in New York city asking "What's a browser". This would explain what I have just told you:
Another thing to note is that not knowing exactly what is a browser is not something related to age. Lots of young people show there's no age distinction when it comes to tools and actions.
Also note that at 1:22 the guy says he's switched to Firefox - actually his friend came over and "erased all my other browsers and told me to use this now" and behind him there's a big billboard saying "I'm a PC"...
