I have a long ugly google url stored in a file. It's stored in a file
from a file when the browser gets started and open that url for me I can
maybe get this done. The long ugly url is over 200 characters long
which is why I would like to avoid keying it all in.
I just thought of something. This will even work with firefox but it's
only for us braille users who write braille on paper and have plenty of
paper. I could rewrite the url on paper so it's split into 5 character
groups and have commas separating each of the groups and as I key in
each group change the comma to a semicolon so I know that group already
got keyed in and move along to the next group.
