Firefox gets the Paste & Go feature

The latest nightly build of Firefox 4 gets an option of “Paste and Go“, like some other browsers such as Google Chrome, Maxthon and Opera have.  All these days there was an extension which added this feature, but now its permanently bolted in Firefox.

This useful feature in Firefox now lets you to copy the URL and paste it and without need to hit the Enter option.

You can directly click Paste & Go to visit the URL.

Just copy the URL and it gets copied to the clipboard and when you right click and hit Paste & Go option, the copied URL will be executed.

To use this feature right away, you will have to download and install the Nightly Builds of Firefox 4.

We sincerely hope that Microsoft too will consider adding this very useful time-saving feature in the final version of Internet Explorer 9.

Want to add Add Paste and Go to Internet Explorer? This used to work in IE7. Try and see if it still works in IE9.

    about time!!! Now it’s time for IE9 to do the same!

  2. “Other browsers such as… ”

    Gee. Google Chrome was almost as late to the “paste and go” feature as Firefox. And Maxthon? First “added” paste and go in 2007… as an add-on, an extension. Late to the game, as well.

    But, it is nice to see more and more browsers copying Opera’s functionality. Eventually, one of them might just be as “out of the box” functional as Opera is now. Still waiting though. Why, browsers in general just recently caught up to Opera’s 1994 multi-pages, one window approach by emulating its tabbing interface, some nearly as well.

    Now, how easy is it in these other browsers that have finally emulated paste and go to designate–within the browser’s own interface, as has been possible in Opera for many, many iterations–a key combo of the user’s choice to effect paste and go?

    Not so, is how easy.
