Description Alexey Proskuryakov 2014-01-01 23:26:49 PST

Considering that the encoding of the content browsed is not really a
function of the UI localization of the browser, though the two are
often correlated, I have developed a patch for Firefox to make the
guess based on the top-level domain name of the URL of the document
when possible.

Seems like a good idea to me, would be nice to have this fallback list standardized and implemented in all browsers.
