  1. yo i just noticed this i dont know if anyone else knew about it but like you know when you press ctrl+enter it gives you "www.#####.com" well if you press shift+enter it gives you "www.####.net",
    but again on firefox all you have to type is the name (e.g. if you type simply "osnn" in the address bar it'll open www.osnn.net, if you type "thebroken" in the address bar it'll open "www.thebroken.org")

    Opera's got an autocomplete where all you have to do is type in the name and it'll automagically search through a list of domains. Rather useless for me but I could see it being a semi-useful function.
     
  9. i still like firefox better :D

    Safari does this for your history.

    I noticed that the other day accidently and thought that was reallycool! I really enjoy FireFox but I still use Opera because of the"wand" options.
