    I need this because my brain is apparently TLD insensitive (doesn’t remember if it’s .com, .org, .net and so on).

      TLDs (especially the more unusual ones) seem to be somewhat at odds with the idea that a url should be human readable/memorable. The fact that you can get the domain correct and still have a good chance of landing on the wrong page seems like a massive flaw in DNS.

        massive flaw in DNS.

        Or… massive flaw in ICANN/IANA’s gTLD program?

          That’s certainly a part of the domain name system though? An administrative part of it and not a technical part, but still

            Sure. But the administrative part is the problem here. The creation of new TLDs, seemingly arbitrarily, has magnified the OP’s problem. DNS “works” just fine. But, unless a property is vigilant about registration of their name dot {ALL TLDs}…

            Maybe using search, instead of the search address bar, isn’t the most annoying thing…

      I love this sort of thing. Well done!

        Clever. Works well combined with GreenTunnel to bypass local DPI stupidity.
