Software: Shortcuts to Web Browsing

A site called OpenDNS allows people to surf their favorite web sites by typing keywords that they create. For example, lets say you bank at 'Bank of America', you can create a shortcut called 'BOA' that would take you to their web site when you typed it.

To use this service, you have to do a few things:
  1. Log in to your account on the OpenDNS web site, if you don't have an account there then you can create one.
  2. Setup your computer to use the OpenDNS servers for DNS lookups.
    • See the site for detailed instructions.
  3. After you're logged in to your account you can start creating your keyword shortcuts.
