I Hate Typing... How Can I Surf Online Faster?


How Can I Get To That Site Quicker?


This question was answered on August 23, 2007. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Depending upon how long you have been surfing the web, you may still be in the habit of typing "www.", then the name of the site, then ".com" or even more comical is watching a n00B (newbie) type a complete web address into Google instead of the address bar at the top of the browser You can generally leave out the "www" for most websites these days, but here is a tip that will make all of it even easier:

Simply type the name of the site you wish to visit without any of the www or .com and then hit Ctrl-Enter, which will automatically fill in the www and .com for you! (Works in both Internet Explorer and Firefox.)
