    I have to admit that there is ONE thing that Windows seems to have over Mac. At work when I am using Windows XP and Internet Explorer and I want to type in an internet address, all I have to do is single left click on the current web address and it is all automatically highlighted so that I can just start typing in the new one. At home on my iMac G5 with Tiger, I either have to triple click or click and drag over the address to highlight it all. Is there a trick that I am not aware of that will eliminate having to do click-click-click all the time?? :confused:

    Clicking on the website icon (on the left side of the adress) should do the trick.

    I use command + l all the time though another shortcut I find very useful is to type command + option + f to directly type in the google search field in Safari.
