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.

Actually, in your example, Mozilla 1.1 will search the local intranet for a site called apple. Then, after not finding it, it will then add the www and .com. That seems great, but on my 1gh machine with loads of ram, Moz 1.1 takes about 12 seconds to finally get around to fixing the link. IE with Ctrl-Enter does it in a split second.

Useful is the dropdown which is smart enough to put <http://www.apple.com> as I type apple, but that's still different than the autopilot one gets from just typing "apple", Ctrl-enter, done.
