  1. I'd love for the default behaviour of CTRL+L in the new IE to auto-select the
    entire text of the address bar, allowing me to type a new URL directly.

    CTRL+O could stay the same, providing the user with an "open" dialog.

    On a side note, IE7 b2 is looking GORGEOUS. Great work!

  3. Brandon,

    Thank you for your comments. However, it would seem that CTRL+L is more of
    a standardized method of opening a URL in the address bar, as opposed to

    In lieu of being "conformist," I think this is actually because it's a more
    comfortable keystroke combination. Without a multimillion dollar grant to
    test this hypothesis in a sterile environment, I think we'll all just have to
    take that as my opinion. ;)

  4. I disagree, but respect your opinion.

    There is no key-stroke standards body, and 85% of the browser market uses
    alt+d, so I would think conformists would be pushing for alt+d.
