Tired of typos in your URLs? URL Fixer is an extension for Firefox (and other Mozilla-based browsers, such as Flock) that fixes common mistakes in your address bar caused by careless keystrokes. For example, typing
hackszine.con will redirect to
hackszine.com. The current version:
will correct common misspellings of .com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov, and .mil, as well as the protocol (http:, https:). It will also correct errors in country code TLDS such as .com.XX, .net.XX, and .org.XX. By right-clicking on the address bar, you can set it to auto-correct your errors, or you can have it ask you before making any corrections.
Note that the confirmation message shown in the screenshot here is the result of configuration. By default, URL Fixer auto-corrects errors, quickly and seamlessly, which I’ve found quite handy.
