URL Fixer - Avoid URL Typos

URL Fixer is a handy little Firefox add-on that I just learned about from Tekzilla Daily. When installed and activated, URL Fixer launches a pop-up warning whenever it detects a typo in a url. The pop-up will ask you to confirm or change the url before proceeding to load a website. Learn more about URL Fixer in the video below.


Applications for Education
If you've ever tried to get a whole classroom full of students onto the same url at once, you probably know the frustration that can occur when students mistype urls. URL Fixer could be just the tool to fix that problem.
