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.

I agree that it is better, but the Ctrl + Enter combination is something that some people are so used to (like say a mouse gesture) that it's required for Mozilla to have that before they switch. I'm an idealist who doesn't see the world as all .com, but the small realist in me says that there's a enough demand for this functionality, that it should be a preference with the default set to work as Moz does now (without ctrl + enter) at most. At least there should be an xpinstall to get ctrl + enter functionality (which shouldn't be to far from where we are). Why not have the ability to do both with the Internet Keywords for the people who want it (like me) and the cntl+enter for the others?
