    Is there an extension that mimics the new FF 3 address bar functionality? I want to be able to browse my bookmarks by title. I find this really handy in FF. Can it be done in Safari?

    When you type the address of a site, Safari's address bar should start to fill in it automatically if it's in your History or Bookmarks. So, I have Apple's website bookmarked, so I type in apple.com — and it pulls it up.

    If you're just trying to type "Apple" and have it pull it up (without typing ".com"), that’s something Safari won't be able to do. Unfortunately that capability hasn't implemented into the application. Firefox and Google Chrome have this type of feature (Firefox calls it the "Awesome Bar"). After doing some Googling to see if the Awesome Bar is available for Safari, the results don't look too promising right now.

    I think you're probably going to have to live without it or try another browser.
