Frequently used URLs
To aid users in finding frequently used URLs, Firefox 3 has its Awesome Bar, which displays a drop down menu of recent Web pages culled from your browser history file. IE 8 has something similar. Type in any URL and IE 8 matches it to any URLs in your browser history file. That way co-workers can't see what you've typed before. Also it allows you to simply eliminate mistyped URLs.
Correction: In an earlier version of this caption, we stated that Firefox lacked the ability to remove history items from the Awesome Bar; turns out that by highlighting the item and then hitting the delete key will do the trick.
