Firefox address completion shortcuts


I haven’t been able to find this on many other sites (I am _SURE_ its out there) but there is a little known short cut in Firefox (partially implemented in Internet Explorer) that I use constantly. Its the Control+Enter combo to automatically add the www. and .com to an address. This works on both Internet Explorer and Firefox. But Firefox doesn’t stop there, oh no it doesn’t, it adds .org AND .net addresses to the mix as well!!! Observe:

Enter google in the Firefox address bar and hit:
Control+Enter.
Neeto! it just automatically made the URL http://www.google.com

Now enter google in the Firefox address bar and hit:
Shift+Enter.
WOW! It makes the http://www.google.net

Finally enter google in the Firefox address bar and hit:
Control+Shift+Enter.
Howree-cow! It just made the address http://www.google.org

Now, why don’t you go out and learn a new language with all the free time you have just created for yourself. I recommend Perl.
