Browser URL Shortcuts

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I was thinking recently on how I could make my browsing experience better and thought about accessing sites faster by simply typing in a word for a certain website instead of the whole URL.
For example lets say instead of typing in "http://forum.bodybuilding.com/" I'd much prefer to simply type in "fit" and be directed to that page. I'm sure something like that is out there and maybe I'm already able to do such thing in Firefox however I can't seem to find it, time to ask you guys for help!

i dont know how to do exactly what you are saying, but if you have auto complete on, you dont have to finish whatever you are typing. for example, if i want to go to "Overclock.net" all i have to do is type "Ove" and my browser finishes it for me. also, you should just add pages to your favorites toolbar.

It's not that difficult. Add pages to favorites, and they will probably be the first thing as a suggestion. For example I visited that site from your link and I had to type in "forum" or "bodyb" before it was the first suggestion.
Here's my solution, in Chrome I have the favorites bar without any text, so it's just a row of icons:

I visit a lot of websites so filling up my toolbar is not an option especially with what I currently have going on in my toolbar.
Also, auto complete is very limited. Sure it'll type in the rest of the URL for the hope page of a commonly visited website but that's about it.

isn't there something you can modify in the "about:config" menu ?
