You might even just use "e", or "eb"!
It's a superb idea, and is supported by Firefox too. I visit many regular sites this way.
At that time I open firefox & type Whaybackmachine & FF directly open
[archive.org...] page for me. I just want same type of future with Opera.
Think of a simple word like "instrument". Why should that go to a specific site about machinery and not a musical shop? Because someone must have paid for it to happen. (Correct me if I'm wrong.)
So unless browser makers can agree on using the same database, they will always differ. That's why for certain sites it's best to set them up as bookmarks yourself and choose the words that work.
Besides, it's much easier to invent a shorter word like "wbm" instead of having to type in full the word "waybackmachine". Plus it'll be the same in Opera and Firefox, and any other browser that allows nicknames/keywords.
by default I believe the prefix is set to "www" and the suffix is set to "com."
by typing "ebay" should bring you to ebay.com, or by typing "mustard" will bring you to mustard.com.
but the best of all is to highlite a word on a webpage, by double clicking it, which brings up a submenu, which you can then click on "go to url."
