Of course the Protocol is still required. The fact that you don't see and don't explicitly need to type it, doesn't mean it is not there.

You haven't ever needed to type in http:// in a graphical web browser, going all the way back to 1994. Not in Netscape, IE, Opera, Mosaic, etc.

In fact the only reason this is displayed in the browser's address bar is because browsers support multiple protocols and it's nice to see which one you are using if you are using something other than http://:

ftp://
https://
ldap:// (ended at netscape 5)

etc.

Since '94, if you only typed netscape.com, the browser would take you to http://netscape.com by default.

Another major misconception was / is that web sites had to / could only be hosted on a host which was named "www".

That's impressive.
Which typing system is that? Is it available for purchase or is it embedded in the vista system?

Yes, I think so. Or Ryu should try to choose the right setup for the keyboard. It's Romaji default type-in.

So can we say vista already does intelligent switching? My IE7 is now crippled by google plugin so i can't test. Can anyone here with IE7 pls help test with the commonly used MS Pinyin?

Re: These days I prefer "。jp" to ".com"

hiya

i have to say that while ryu is right and it is easier to type .jp it is also only a slight inconvenience to type .com in japanese mode - at least on my keyboard setup.

to type roman letters in japanese input mode all you have to do is hold shift down and type, then roman characters appear, and even though they are in double byte, the browser will convert them ok.

just 2c

vista sounds convenient then. thank you for sharing.

now i have just one question though.

what happens if you try to type in ".日本" with the roma-ji typing mode on vista? i hope it doesn't turn into ".nihon" or ".nippon"...

Well, not as you hope, it does turn into ".nihon" or ".nippon".

But this is easy to fix when .日本 is live.

thanks Giant,

and i agree that the problem is easy to fix... i wonder, though, how they would fix it. depending on the way they do it, IDN.com might once again become slightly difficult to type in for vista users.
