Internet Explorer 8 hosts a cheeky little security feature called Domain Highlighting. This is a simple feature which highlights the Top Level Domain of a website in black while greying out the rest of the website link.
A Top Level Domain is the primary domain name of any site which can have any number of Subdomains. highlighting the Top Level Domain of a website in the address bar always ensures that the user is always aware of site he is in. This is very important when it comes to secured sites like your online banking website or a site like Paypal where the information you enter (anything from a access username and password to account & creditcard informations) is critical.
