I don't have many bookmarks although i have tons of sites that i go to
I just type in the doman name, like msn, and then i press ctrl+enter, which inserts the www. and the .com, i find that very useful
I hardly ever use the mouse, only to select things, even if i want to change the address bar, i press alt+d, which selects the whole url
I find those very handy

Default Re: Do you still type www.

you all sincerly misunderstand the naming systems employed in the internet...

www. is a subdomain, not an optional prefix.

it is possible for http://www.something.com not to be a site at all, whilst http://someting.com is a site...

simillarly, it's possible for http://something.com not to exist at all, whilst www.something.com does exist.
