Fun little experiment to try out: go to your browser’s address bar (works best in desktop Chrome) and record your top websites that autocomplete for each of the letters a-z. And if you’re feeling especially brave, share the results with the world… 😈
M) messenger.com - I use FB Messenger a lot more than SMS ever since I spent a few years living abroad in Thailand. International SMS is clunky but internet messaging platforms always “just work”. And of those platforms like Line, Wechat, etc., the only one where 99% of my friends have accounts is FB Messenger.
N) news.ycombinator.com - Hacker News! 😎 I was a little surprised Netflix didn’t make it as my #1 but these days I stream more from external devices than my primary laptop. Also nytimes.com rounding out my top 3.
O) outlook.com - Cause some companies force you to use Outlook 🤷
P) producthunt.com - As a serial entrepreneur, Product Hunt’s a daily visit for me.
Q) Leaving this one out as it’s an admin dashboard for async jobs for a recent project of mine.
R) reddit.com - The constant rabbit-hole of Reddit. :sigh:
X) This was the only letter that didn’t autocomplete to any website for me… no seriously, it didn’t autocomplete even though there were results… I wonder if this is a built-in privacy mechanism of Chrome because I definitely don’t use Incognito mode... 🤷
Y) youtube.com - I spend a lot more time on here than I probably should. :sigh:
