Get Auto Complete URL In Firefox Address Bar As You Type – Just Like Google Chrome Address Bar

One of the most amazing feature of google chrome which I like is its auto complete the URL of the site you had typed or accessed before as per the history maintained. But in case of firefox it does not happen like this rather here, if you are typing a URL which you had typed before then it will suggest you with some results out of which you can select by pressing the down arrow key and then press enter to open the selected URL (as shown in the image below)

    I much rather prefer Firefox’s autocomplete. I don’t even have to type the URL but just a few keywords of the page title, like “FIFA world” and I can see FIFA world cup site with the site logo that makes identificatoin of the page I need very easy. Is there some thing like that in chrome?
