a lot of you probably already know this one, but to save having to type the http://www. ... .com you can just type the name of the site that you want to go to and press ctrl+enter. This will add the http://www. and .com for you and start navigating to the site. for example if you want to go to microsoft's site just type microsoft in the address bar and hit ctrl+enter:) i

I know this works but most of the time I just type the name like
cnn.com
msnbc.com

no need to even type www. most of the time

but at least it doesn't take the coordination of having to press 2 buttons at once :p

By the time you type it, stop, reach down to press the two keys, you could have already been to the site just by typing the whole thing in the first place. Unless you don't know how to type.

Jeez what some will do when it's called a tweak.

I wasn't trying to make fun of it. For me just typing it in is faster. It's all one motion for me, instead of three, 'typing, stopping, hitting two keys.

What ever works.

when im typing, my left little finger is always on left-CTRL, and my right little finger is always near ENTER, so it works 4 me.

good tip, it was due to be rementioned, i use it and am quite used to the control enter, cause that's the short cut for sending instant messages on aol (i know, i know, aol sucks), and i use it for messaging all the time, so it just comes naturally i guess....heh

using alt+enter is a lot faster than just typing in google.com or just google....typing google.com takes a lot longer to load...

Hi, Mike. I don't think saving a fourth of a second really matters when browsing web sites :)
