Paste & Go coming to Firefox 4

Posted: Saturday, October 9, 2010 by El Guru in Blogs, Firefox, Fx 4.0, Mozilla News

Firefox 4 will now have a new feature available from the context menu called ‘Paste & Go’. This option is available when pasting into either the address bar or search box. As the name implies, once the content is pasted it automatically goes to the address or displays the results for the searched term.

I can’t say I am all that excited about this feature. For one thing I rarely paste via the context menu. Most of the time I either paste via CTRL+V. In the cases of addresses, this is usually after I have opened a new tab. I suppose for people who use the context menu a lot this would be useful.

    Fetch Text URL addon does this nicely because you can decide whether you want open in new tab/window or background tab. I hope the new functionality doesn’t disable this addon as it seems the addon is more versatile.
