URL Fixer. Uber coder Chris Finke has produced a whizzo little Firefox extension which automatically corrects those annoying typos we all enter in the address bar from time to time. You know, .con, .ku, .prg… It’s a small step for man, but a giant leap for geek-kind. Nice one!
URL Fixer is an extension for Mozilla-based Web browsers that corrects typos in URLs that you enter in the address bar. For example, if you type google.con, it will correct it to google.com (asking first, if you enable confirmation). The latest version of URL Fixer is version 1.3.4. This version will correct common misspellings of .com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov, and .mil, as well as the protocol (http:, https:). 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.
