When going to your most frequently-visited sites, do you usually use a bookmark to get there or type in the url?

Most web browsers remember your keystrokes and will simply put in the full url if you just type one letter. So I guess url?

If I visit it several times a day, I probably have a shortcut for it on my desktop, or at the very least have it in the bookmarks bar on one of my browsers. If I only visit it once or twice a week I probably have a standard bookmark for it. Less than that and I probably just start typing in the url and let it autocomplete. For some focused pages with little crossover I keep a clickable HTML document of URLs with descriptions, like a local page of links. I find that most convenient for specialized sites, like for welding supplies, aviation-related sites, Linux-related sites, tools, etc.

All the people who type do so because there most visited site is pornhub. You don't want that hanging out in your bookmarks.

Type it, Google it, just leave it open all the time

Depends on the site

I keep my most used websites open in tabs and have the browser remember what was open when I close it.

Bookmarks at work

At home: bookmarks for bills & a few other things, but many of them, I start typing the url & it populates.

Combination of both, and I couldn't tell you which I use more. I have a lot of bookmarks, but mostly what I use instead is the display of Favorites when I open a new browser tab. But probably just as often I just start typing a URL and it autofills after a couple of letters.

Not *all* the people. I don't type "au" because "audible.com" is a porn site; I do it because it's easier to type 2 letters than to go pick out the bookmark. Same for "sm" which gets me Amazon (actually Amazon Smile).

Bookmark or type the name. I forget the address or I'm too lazy to look it up

I have a few bookmarks for the sites that I go to all the time, but I go to a wide range of sites, so I just type in most of the sites I go to.
