Intelligent Explorer - IE

How? Let's take an example with Google site (try with any other or even complex URL as well). While the full address is 'http://www.google.com', omit the first letter 'h' and input 'ttp://www.google.com' in the address bar.

Result? While all other major browsers including Chrome, Firefox and Safari throw "Unable to recognize the address or 'ttp:' protocol" message, only IE opens up the Google page.

Ofcourse, it's as simple as to automatically prefix the missing 'h' in the URL that begin with 'ttp:'. But isn't it nice to see that IE can handle even such simple things?

Cool!!
