This integrated Firefox add-on provides Web address autocomplete assistance, but it's not as advanced as it advertises.
Since Autocomplete Manager is integrated into Firefox, it sits nicely out of view until users begin entering a Web address. Begin typing any Web address, and several suggestions appear below the address bar. The suggestions are based on user-specified options, as well as bookmarks and frequently visited sites. A quick visit to the Tools menu allows access to the inner workings of the application. Users can customize the appearance of the autocomplete component by selecting sorting criteria, bookmark position within the results, the number of visible suggestions, and more. Although these features can come in handy for anyone who browses many pages per day, Firefox versions 3.0 and above already have a similar feature. Many of the publisher's promise come off sounding a bit more grand than Autocomplete Manager actually delivers, but it does quickly provide results as you type.
This freeware gets the job done and costs you nothing to use. It's simple enough for anyone to use.
This extension provides advanced features for the address Autocomplete component in Firefox. Available features include: matching against bookmark addresses; matching against page titles and bookmark names; matching anywhere in the address, not just the beginning; changing the sorting criterion to alphabetical by address or title, most frequently visited, most recently visited, or top-level pages first; completing the best match inline; temporarily or permanently disabling the suggestion pop-up; excluding local pages and pages containing search results; swapping the address and title columns on the suggestion pop-up; highlighting the column where a match was found; fine-tuning the pop-up appearance by hiding page titles, changing the number of visible suggestions, and setting the truncation method for long addresses and page title.
