If you use the Address Bar often, you might benefit from AutoComplete. To use this feature, Choose View, Internet Options and click on the Advanced tab. Check the box labeled Use AutoComplete. Click on Apply and then OK.
Now type an address into the Address Bar. Try www.wugnet.com.
Navigate to another site and then go back to the Address Bar and type www.w.
AutoComplete will automatically fill in the rest: www.wugnet.com.
The way this works is, AutoComplete will suggest the rest of the address based on sites previously visited, and sometimes it may guess incorrectly. This is because you may have more then one site in your cache containing the same first few characters. As you continue to type, the URL in the Address Bar should change to reflect the next available match. By all means, you should try this feature out. It's a real timesaver.
