Thank you all for the interesting feedback on the theme and autocomplete. I've gotten some good ideas for ways to improve autocomplete from your posts.
I agree that the list of autocomplete results is often filled with garbage. We definitely need to sort in a more intelligent way than just alphabetically. I'm thinking that I could sort first by most visited sites, and perhaps also not show urls that have more than a certain number of sub-directories.
Some of you want the url to be inserted in the textbox as you type, while some of you don't. I think that it is only handy to complete the url if the url being completed is the one you want to go to. We could try to determine this by the number of times you have visited a site, or by how may subdirectories are in the url. In cases where no url meets a certain criteria, nothing would be inserted.
