Control-Shift-L Pastes And Opens A Link In IE9

There's a tiny but very useful tweak in the RC version of Internet Explorer 9: if you have a URL stored on the clipboard, typing Control-Shift-L will automatically open it in the current tab. That's a nice little time saver that we hope a few other browser developers decide to copy.


    Not all *that* much of a timesaver, I've been using Ctrl+T,V for ages :P

    opera have had this feature forever.

    in opera = Ctrl + Shift + V

    in firefox = get the paste and go extension and use the same shortcut as for opera.

    and with firefox 4, you can highlight a piece of text containing a website and right click it, where there is an option to open link in either new or same window or new tab.
