Yes, write the address and use Alt+Enter (it works the same for Chrome except it works in empty tabs as well)

Actually, I think Alt+Enter is sufficient. +1 anyway. – jjlin Aug 2 '13 at 17:19
@jjlin Thanks for the correction, I just updated the answer :D – DarkAjax Aug 2 '13 at 17:25
This doesn't work on empty tabs, but otherwise it works. – user1306322 Aug 2 '13 at 17:27
Note: For Opera its Shift+Enter – nixda Aug 2 '13 at 17:28
