Time Event

Many web-browsers, including Firefox and IE, pop up a list of websites you have previously visited when you enter characters into the address field.

Enter the letters of the alphabet individually in order (ie. a, (delete), b, (delete), etc.) and post the top site for each letter. If the site is not worksafe or otherwise inappropriate, you may enter 'inappropriate' or similar text by the letter. If there are no entries, state that. Give your friends an insight into your browsing habits.

Of course, whether it shows recently-visited sites or frequently-visited sites is up to your browser - if you know or can work out this information, you can include it or not, as you will. Ditto for any other comments on your list.

I'm pretty sure these are recently visited rather than frequently visited — some of the above I've only ever been to once. Also, it looks like it gives preference to addresses that you typed in favour of those that you merely clicked on ("it" in this case being Mozilla).
At least it's not quite as loud as the pneumatic drill they have been using to poke holes in the basement for the last couple of days…
