Re: Good old days

I'm quite capable of expressing my wishes in the wrong form box onscreen. I did enjoy an early-ish copy of Opera where the URL box would take (g hedgehog diet) as code to use Google (g) to look up The Hedgehog Diet. Otherwise its default was, and maybe still is, to autocomplete (iwantsomething) to iwantsomething.com, with a configuration choice if you preferred iwantsomething.co.uk instead.

Warning that these are all probably sex things except for the hedgehog one, on which anything I ever heard or will ever hear, or see, about it being a sex thing will be firmly forgotten as much as I possibly can.
