Type-Ahead Browsing

The latest version of Mozilla is out, and it has a swanky new feature: type-ahead browsing.

Say I’m on a page and I see a link that reads, “Click for next page, Mr. Superb.” I can just start typing that link and, voila! Mozilla figures out that I want that particular link. I can then hit Return to be whisked away. It’s a pretty cool feature, although given that I swap over to the mouse fairly normally… I’m not sure how often I’ll use it (just like the 849 features in Word that I don’t use.)

But, I give the Moz developers credit: they’re trying.

If Mozilla knew what link I wanted without me doing anything...that would be cool!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
