Save yourself typing those obnoxious http letters! This peculiar acronym is really just an annotation… it displays that Hypertext Transfer Protocol language is being used to transmit your web pages. Since the web browsers already assumes this protocol by default, there is no need for you to actually type those prefix letters to open a page.
If you are going to an http://www.something.com address, the Internet browsers will type the http://www. and the .com for you!For example, if you type darwinawards and press CTRL-Enter, then Internet browsers will type http://www.darwinawards.com for you! This CTRL-Enter trick only works for www.something.com commercial addresses. If you want to go to a .ca or .net or .au or .uk address, you will have to manually type the full address.
