After typing a URL in Google Chrome, how can I launch the address without pressing the Return or Enter key? I have been trying to figure out a way to do this for a long time. How can I achieve this?


Sorry, I didn't say very clearly. I meant, not to use keyboard, but use mouse. How can I let it GO? I didn't see any button or place I can click

Which operating system are you using? Also, how long do you want Chrome to wait before it launches the URL? Do you want it to happen when you type .com or .net for example? –  iglvzx Feb 22 '12 at 6:04

Chrome beta/dev versions should have instant rendering of pages soon as you type them, should be available in about:flags. Still requires a confirmation that you did visit to the page –  Sathya Feb 22 '12 at 6:11

@AndersLind, how does it know when you are done then? –  soandos Feb 22 '12 at 6:13

There's no dedicated "go" button, clicking on the URL will start the request to the link.

As for instant rendering, Chrome beta/dev versions should have instant rendering of pages soon as you type them, should be available in about:flags. Still requires a confirmation that you did visit to the page - you can "confirm" this by clicking on the URL you just typed in or by hitting enter

By clicking URL is not working, at least for me, on Mac SL. –  Anders Lind Feb 22 '12 at 6:21
    
I meant the URL in the dropdown that comes under the address bar, not in the address bar itself @AndersLind –  Sathya Feb 22 '12 at 6:24
