Thanks David Alves and Nic Haralambous for this idea. Below is a list of the URLs that come up when I type each letter of the alphabet into my Chrome address bar. Interesting to see the sites that Chrome automatically suggests for each letter.

B – bizcommunity.com Mandatory reading for local industry news.
