One practical, but sometimes annoying, feature in most browsers today, is the autocomplete functionality in the URL field. While it does save you time when you are used to it, it can also send you to a different page than you were intending. Luckily, both Firefox and Chrome has a shortcut to delete entries from the autocomplete list.
Start typing the address, and when the one you want to delete shows up in the list of alternatives, use your down-key to mark it. Then simply delete it by typing
Shift+Delete. If you’re on a Mac with a compact keyboard, the keyboard combination
fn+shift+backspace will do the same thing.
