When typing in a URL such as http://www.technibble.com simply type into the address bar technibble followed by ctrl and enter and the prefix and the .com will be filled in automatic. or use shift and enter to fill in the prefix and .net

I would have to agree Altster that at least for me, typing .com takes like a quarter of a second and having to coordinate the left pinky to control while simultaneously hitting enter just takes longer.

Maybe these would be a good idea to put on the back of a business card? They might be inclined to look back to them and its the kind of thing that would get stuck to a monitor. It would keep your contact details prominent and on regular display?
