When I started using OpenDNS several years ago, a shortcut function was available. I could enter a single word in the URL field of my browser and press the enter key to immediately go to the page represented by the shortcut word. I created several short 3-letter or 4-letter shortcut words for thinks like 'mail' for my online email account or 'bank' for my online banking account. I liked this simple feature but it has been removed so the shortcuts I created now open the OpenDNS search engine instead.
The workaround for the lack of the shortcut feature is to create a series of browser bookmarks which take longer to find on the bookmark list than simply typing a quick, short word on the keyboard.
Shortcuts always worked great for me and it gave OpenDNS an advantage over Bing, Google, Yahoo!, and other search providers. Please bring them back!
