OpenDNS introduces Shortcuts

Here’s a simple but very useful way to expand on OpenDNS’s staple of services — address bar shortcuts. If you’re not yet familiar with OpenDNS and how it works, check out my previous post on how it can help you with your ISP’s intermittent DNS problems.

With OpenDNS Shortcuts, you can now assign words or group of letters to mean some frequestly visited URLs. An example here is Yahoo! Mail:

All you need to do, if you’re already using OpenDNS, is to open an account and sign in, create your shortcuts and type away. Really neat.

    That’s cool. I’ve used OpenDNS during the times after the Taiwan earthquake. Their features just keeps getting better and better.

    Does this apply only to those who have static IPs?
