A shortcut to complete URLs in OmniWeb 5 Web Browsers
Like Safari, OmniWeb 5 remembers sites you have visited before, and when you start typing in the address, it gives you suggestions after just a few keystrokes. Unlike Safari, though, OmniWeb 5 will allow you to enter just the end of a URL and still have it show up in the list.

For example, suppose you have visited the site ''. In Safari you would start typing ',' and Safari would offer the rest of the text for you to select. In Omniweb 5, you can just type 'chequing,' and it will include the site in the list. A lot easier to remember, and much quicker to type.

another reason why ow5 is imho the best browser around. :-)
make sure to use its builtin-shortcuts, too!

for example:
you can set the letter "x" typed into the location bar to take you to this site.

i have defined many shortcuts like that, so all i need to do is type 1-3 letters like "img" and i'll be taken to

you can also make these shortcuts for searches so you can select them instead of google in the "google"-bar. now i can select to search google, imdb, wikipedia, versiontracker and a local music instruments dealer. :-)

have fun

Is there a similar tweak available in Firefox? I love auto-completed URLs.
