Some of the best tools out there you can use are the ones that are the most simple. Sure, you can download an extension that does ten things well, or you can download one extension that does one job better than the rest. That is the idea that comes into play when you see Tab URL Copier.

Don’t be fooled by the name, this extension has nothing to do with Digg.com. It is though a great tool to actually make that “Go” button a little more useful!
Allows you to navigate to parent directories in a URL and climb through subdomains (e.g. go to http://example.com/ from http://sub.example.com/), all from a context menu on the Go button (and on the toolbar button provided by Go Up, if you have that extension installed).
I have yet another extension that allows you to do something quick and easy inside of a quick and easy extension. It is a perfect match, don’t you think? Paste and Go 2 allows you to cut or copy a URL, and then launch it as soon as you paste it into the address bar.
URL Fixer corrects typos in URLs that you enter in the address bar. For example, if you type google.con, it will correct it to google.com (asking first, if you enable confirmation). This extension should help those of us who have a hard time finding the right keyboard keys every once in a while.
