is it in your bookmarks or history?
Authored by: albockiole on Oct 07, '02 11:27:34AM

Is it because it's in your bookmarks or history and IE is choosing www.mac.com based on its page title ("Apple .Mac")? That might make sense because CNN never refers to itself as .CNN, so it wouldn't show up if you wrote that in the location bar.

If I type .mac and don't select anything from the location history pull-down, I get an error.

Chances are that it is in history. If you go to www.cnn.com, then type ".cnn" in the Address field, IE will indeed come up with "http://www.cnn.com" in the pick list.

This is because IE presents a pick list based on what you type in the Address field. The pick list is generated by searching history & bookmarks (both URLs and page titles) for what you type in the Address field.

It's a cool feature, no?

I think that bookmark theory is correct. I'm trying .mac in the title bar (from what I got from the hint, that's all the person typed in) and I get a server not found error. I don't have any .mac pages or anything with .mac bookmarked.

Though I did just try to bookmark the main .mac page on apple's site which has .mac in the title tag, and that didn't work.

typing in "mac" w/o a bookmark to "http://www.mac.com" will fill in "mac.com" then go to www.mac.com. Typing in ".mac", with it in history or bookmarked did not work.
