the problem I've always had with this is if you're already looking at a
website and there is a URL in the URL field, there's no way to paste the
new URL so it will replace the old one.  So you have to highlight the URL
in the browser, wipe it out, go back to where the new URL is, highlight
it, go back to the browser, then click to paste into the broowser's URL
