What's In Your Browser ? ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿฑ๐Ÿ‘ค๐ŸŽซ๐ŸŽŸ


#1

Hereโ€™s the deal. Most browsers will auto-suggest a website when you start typing a URL (website)

So, go through A - Z and write down where your browser thinks you want to go. I found a few letters didnโ€™t have any suggestion, so I just said NULL for them.

I like this idea, but I am only including ones which surprise me. leaving off g for gmail, and a for amazon, for example.

b boston.com
e eschatonblog.com
j joannecasey.blogspot.com
l llbean.com
p playcatan.org

fair enough. Havenโ€™t been on PlayCatan for a very long time. I should try and get back into Catan, but TTR has been my gateway game Iโ€™ve been using lately.

This is a pretty new computer and I basically just use it for work, but itโ€™s still inexcusably bland. Almost bland enough to be noteworthy in its own right. I access most interesting content on my phone via RSS.

Anyone for whom this isnโ€™t the answer for โ€˜bโ€™ needs to report for reeducation.

itโ€™s a button - I donโ€™t usually type B into the URL bar unless Iโ€™m checking the news.


#10

Iโ€™d make a suggestion, but the URL has changed.


#11

Iโ€™m clearing off the obvious ones but so many were links to season 2 of Enterprise on Amazon. Embarrassing.

a arstechnica.com
b bbs.boingboing.net
e www.e-chords.com/chords/black-sabbath/war-pigs lol
f fsavard.com/code/speedread/
h humblebundle.com

k keep.google.com
p portableapps.com
r raspberrypi.org
s slashdot.org >_>
x t6 aluminum channel on ebay
z phoboslab.org/ztype/

The one for Z I donโ€™t recognize but itโ€™s a really cool typing game. :smiley:

(90% of my browsing is done in Incognito mode, making for a lot of holes in this list. Mostly filled with the second season of Enterprise. :astonished:)

P.S. Zompist has all kinds of interesting things, but one of my favorites is the Zompist phrasebook - extremely useful to people who are fluent speakers or readers of one or more European languages, not so much recommended to those who arenโ€™t. Some examples may clarify:

  • I wish to complain.
    Je veux porter plainte.
    Protesto.
    Ich will mich beschweren.

  • Itโ€™s better in the States.
    Cโ€™est mieux aux Etats-Unis.
    Es mejor en los Estados Unidos.
    In den Staaten ist es besser.

โ€ฆ

  • I understand your language perfectly.
    Je parle franรงais comme une vache espagnole.
    Hablo espaรฑol como un gringo borracho.
    Ich sprechen deutsch wie italienisch FuรŸballtrainer.

  • Down the street. Around the block. Past the river.
    Devant lโ€™hรดtel. A cรดtรฉ du parc. Au tabac.
    Por el otro lado. Derecho, defrente. Cerca del bosque.
    Hinter dem Haus. Durch den Tunnel. Bei der Ampel rechts.

  • Across the bridge. Two blocks down. Go that way.
    Retournez dโ€™oรน vous รชtes venu[e]. Vous รชtes lร . Par lร  cโ€™est bloquรฉ.
    Doble a la derecha. Tome el autobรบs. Este sitio es peligroso.
    Durchโ€™s Treppenhaus. Am Kanal lang. Dem Geruch nach.

  • Where is the Cathedral?
    Oรน est le bordel ?
    ยฟDรณnde se da masajes?
    Wo gehtโ€™s 'n hier zum Puff?

โ€ฆ and so on โ€ฆ

The Steam version plays well. It was the reason I opened a steam account.


#18

:bust_in_silhouette: Doesnโ€™t work for me. I have my browser setup to not store history and I have only 5 bookmarks (3 of which are to threads here, and 2 to steam games Iโ€™m considering.) So every letter leads either to bbs.boingboing.net, store.steampowered.com, or a Firefox help page. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ

Some of these are inaccurate, meaning that I regularly visit some other sites with the same letter much more often, but I donโ€™t feel like fixing them.
