Cool LaunchBar Trick

I stumbled across a LaunchBar (4.0beta) feature today.

I hit to trigger LB and typed a match followed by a '.'. Not sure why I typed a '.', but LB's response was a really nice surprise.

As soon as a '.' is entered, LB presents a text field with an 'Open Location' label. Subsequently, entered text is interpreted as entering a hostname with ".com" on the end. Hit a second '.' and LB erases the .com and assumes you are entering a fully qualified hostname.

Furthermore, the arrow keys (and emacs editing keys) can be used to quickly override the automatic behaviors of LB.

Nice attention to detail!
