    Cool dotcom .com modification

    well to enhance it use it would be a good mod to make the .com button either

    user pre-defined withe the user replacing .com with user preference
    eg .net .org, .com.au, .nz etc...

    OR

    the user predefines a number, say 3-5 and simply select from menu.

    Anyone want to develop this?
    If yes please just include my name as the source of the idea..

    May the Force be with Us.

    I like it too. I use it. But on your regular keyboard you can simply type the name of the site in the address bar and hit ctrl/enter. That will fill in all the http and .com stuff.

    the idea is that the iPhone user predefines teh dotcom button as something regularly used.
    For me it's not .com .
    Also the user may have predefined several - maybe 3-5 different options and then can choose which is appropriate.

    I _LOVE_ this application as well! But I would like to see it extended for .org, .net, etc.
