    On my favoiurite bar? About 40 single malt whiskys.

    Wait, favourites bar? My mistook. Sorry.

    It probably should have been my flavourite bar.

    Lots and lots of folders with sub folders, with more sub folders. Definitely too much to list, if I did I'd probably need a decent whisky.

    Re: QOTW: What's on your favourites bar?

    I don't have a favorites bar in any of my browsers (well, maybe IE if it's on by default, I wouldn't know). My modus operandi is to just type the first few letters of the site I want to visit, and autocomplete fills in the rest based on my browsing history. Bookmarks are mainly for specific pages, although to be honest 90% of my bookmarks never get looked at again. I really need to clean out and organize those some time.

    Back when I used Opera 12 speed dial, though (the closest I ever came to using a bookmarks bar long-term), the sites were fairly boring and utilitarian. E-mail, university sites, the most interesting was probably my most-visited forum (CivFanatics, I'm a strategy game nerd). Pressing Ctrl+3 to open the third bookmark was somewhat quicker than typing the first few letters of a site and pausing for a 30th of a second for autocomplete before hitting Enter.

    Re: QOTW: What's on your favourites bar?

    I don't use a favourites bar, never have in fact, even more so now because it's literally just taking screen estate away when I can just click an icon with drop down of all my bookmarks or quickly type in the address bar.

    Re: QOTW: What's on your favourites bar?

    I appreciate that it can be difficult to find a QOTW, but this one seems a bit weak. When's the QOTW "When do you expect ATX12VO to happen?" now that Intel have said the next generation (or is it the one after that?) isn't required to implement it?

    Next week on QOTW... "what's your favourite colour?"

    Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes; after that, who cares?! He's a mile away and you've got his shoes!
