The Awesome Bar

Sounds like the name of some trying-really-hard-to-be-hip new nightspot. After playing with FireFox 3 for a couple of days, I’m surprised to find it’s my favorite feature of the new browser. I upgraded mainly because, for some unknown reason, FF2 was highly unstable on my Mac (crashing at least once a day, and yes that was after ruling out extensions). In search of stability I updated to FF3, but didn’t think much of it’s new features.

I just typed a single letter into the url field and the first item in the awesome bar’s results drop-down was exactly where I wanted to go. Freaky. If it gets any better maybe I’ll be able to navigate via thought :) . A very nice addition, kudos to the Moz team.
