My current code involves a "Watch Me Do" block recording a W keystroke and then opening the new URL, but that's kind of kludgy. Is there any way I can use Automator to open a URL within the current tab? AppleScript would also be acceptable.

(Is this question too basic for Stack Overflow?)

@nK0de If you're going to edit a post, please make sure that the edit is constructive. For example, please don't change the formatting of a poster's code so you can understand it. Most of the time, we know what we're doing and we wrote it the way we did for a specific reason. Just food for thought. :) – fireshadow52 Jan 26 '12 at 17:42

That doesn't work for me. Also, the way you have it formatted makes it impossible to see all of the code; I had to copy and paste it. – timothymh Feb 5 '12 at 21:17
