IE Ctrl+Enter Add-On for Mozilla 1.1
Thursday September 5th, 2002
Oliver Schulze has written an add-on for Mozilla 1.1 that emulates Internet Explorer's Ctrl+Enter behaviour (adds "www." to the beginning and ".com" to the end of what you have typed into the Location Bar). A fair bit of tweaking is required to set up this add-on but it's worth it if you're addicted to this particular aspect of Internet Explorer.
First I would like to say: I have full respect for the contributors to the Mozilla project. The work they do is great! But the comment of this poster is ridiculous: "A fair bit of tweaking is required to set up this add-on but it's worth it if (...)"
Come on! Things like this must be in the real code. If not, and if it requires manual work to set up, a big user base will never gain access to it. This has to be the rule for all such usability extensions.
By the way, is there a good site for introduction to the Moz-benefits, like tabbing, and all the enjoyable shortcuts, like shift-ctrl-click? I think a flash movie could to much good. Does it exist, or should a non-programming community member contribute with a presentation?
