chrome short host trick 4

Posted by peter on November 15, 2010

I usually visit sites hosted at the shortbus labs (my apartment) using a short hostname, but using Chrome this is sometimes problematic- it’ll attempt to search the Goog for results rather than simply visiting the site. It’ll then pop up an apology with a link to click to reach the short host, but this means hands leaving the keyboard to the trackpad, which makes me grumpy.

there is a trick, though- put a / at the end of the shorthost (i.e. shorthost/ as opposed to shorthost), and it won’t send your shorthost name to google for searches.

This is incredibly simple, and really doesn’t deserve a blog post, but it was such an annoyance for me that I’m giving it one.


Use this link to trackback from your own site.

    In my experience the Openswan milaing list is quite helpful. If you want to make sure that your config is ok just post it to the milaing list asking if it’s ok. I have ICS 4.0.4 on my Nexus S and will give 2.6.38 a try but that will be next week earliest.
