Don’t misunderstand that auto correct URL misspelling is a solution to avoid the trap of typosquatting. Typosquatting is a common practice in cyberspace. The people behind it utilise our common typo errors for their fortune. It’s something like mimicking an already established domain or you can call URL with other working domain with some small typo. But here we are talking about something different. We are talking about harmless typo errors in URL like Google,com, Mozilla.con, which may not take us to any unwanted sites.
