Description Erik Arvidsson 2011-01-26 12:49:47 PST
The URL input currently takes the text written by the user literally and uses that as the value. It would be much more useful if we allowed URL fixup to happen. For example, if the user types "webkit.org" the value should be "http://webkit.org".

This issue has forced us to change the type of URL inputs to text which defeats a lot of the purpose.
