    Hello. I'm still working on getting my Mac and recently I was playing around on with safari. My question is this. The number one thing i use on windows computers is ctrl + enter after i've typed in say "macrumors" which then transforms macrumors into http://www.macrumors.com. Because i'm lazy I use this all the time and will die not having it.

    Is there a way to do this in a mac (like some sort of key tricks)? or does safari do that with out having to push any thing besides enter?

    Thanks

    Yes there is a way. Next time just type Macrumors in the address bar and see what happens...;) ..

    Edit: Mernak you beat me to it..

    What happens if you use Spotlight? Cmd-space -> macrumors.com ? Or what if you have Quicksilver installed? <shortcut combo> -> macrumors.com ?

    I can't test either of these right now (work PC) but those are the only things I can think of that may work.
