    WOW that's kind of cool, for people who don't always clear their browsing history. ;) But it is actually seriously cool though I wonder if it will be too cluttered.

    yeah, Im tweaking the about: config now, there should be a way to reduce the number of listed history there, it looks too long for now...

    EDIT, I found it
    in about:config
    this urlbar feature can be turn off by setting
    browser.urlbar.richResults to false

    the number of history record in drop down menu can be changed in
    browser.urlbar.maxRichResults to reduce the height of the drop down menu

    very nice![​IMG]

    That must be part of the pre-Beta 2 builds, as it's not in Beta 1.

    Heh, Opera 9.5 Beta has this same feature, only more refined, and capable of searching text that had appeared on the page too. That feature alone is more useful to me than searching the page title.

    it landed yesterday, today's build should have it as well

    I have O9.5B on my machine, you need to type something before the rich match results show up, simply click dropdown urlbar won't show much information.

    I noticed this. It certainly has some compatibility problems with the new Mac theme for Firefox. Check out the screenshot...
    I've been using Safari 3 on Leopard for most browsing, though. I never really liked Safari before, but it seems a lot more stable and faster in Leopard. I have so say Firefox 3 is shaping up quite nicely, though.
