A is for autofill

I have a neat idea and if it catches on, it may become a full-blown online blog meme or, at least, a decent way to spend ten minutes.

With the proliferation of browsers that use autofill to help complete URLs in the address field – such as Firefox and Safari and probably more – often we have to type only a few letters to get the browser to acknowledge where we want to go. It occurred to me that the autofills suggested by each single letter could provide a sense of one’s being.

Here are mine with comments in brackets:
