Many of you know that when you type “google” in a browser’s address bar and hit Control + Enter, you will be directed to http://www.google.com.
Browsers used to add “http://www.” as prefix and a “.com” at the end.
Though, this is a very good facility and saves time, it was annoying me when I type news.google and hit Control + Enter, goes to http://www.news.google.com .
Well, google will redirect this to http://news.google.com, But I dont like to supply such a url, when I know which doesnt exist.
Many of the browsers are doing like this, and sometimes it might result to a non existing page.
I prefer to use Google Chrome, but since Chrome is not working in my 64 bit PC with Windows 7, I am being forced to use IE8 beta.
The only thing I like in IE8 is that, when you type a sub domain and hit Control + Enter, say, draft.blogger, it will not take you to http://www.draft.blogger.com (which doesn’t exist) , instead it knows that I have given a sub domain and no www to be used, and takes me to the desired url , http://draft.blogger.com
