First letter of word ignored when autocorrecting or swipe-deleting
On an iPhone, load any website in the Chrome browser (other places on iOS too I'm pretty sure, this is just a consistent repro). Tap the address bar at the top to select the url you loaded. Type the word 'season' and press space. 'season' autocorrects to 'sWatson' or 'sreason'. The first letter isn't changed and the rest autocorrects as though the first letter wasn't there (including capitalizing names like Watson). This happens for any word (e.g. 'hello' changes to 'hwool' or 'helk o' because 'wool' and 'elk; are words and 'ello' isn't).
More consistent repro steps not involving autocorrect: swiping to delete the word also ignores the first letter of the word. Tap to select the address bar in chrome, type 'hello' and swipe left to delete the word. Only the 'ello' is deleted, leaving an 'h'.
This bug seems to only occur in textboxes whose entire value is selected by the app (e.g. when tapping an existing url in the address bar, chrome autoselects the field). If the blue handles appear (the ones you use to select the text), the bug does not manifest.
This happens to me often enough that I was compelled to file a bug report. Most often in the Chrome address bar because it has the select-all-on-tap behavior.
