Address bar critinism

  • I don't know where should this go, so I'm trying here first.

    Adress bar in Opera 19 being stupid:

    Many times by typing something like "x search-term" really fast (x-space-ctrl+v-enter) into an adress bar I get a google page with query "http://www.x%20search-term.com" instead of a custom search of "search-term" via service I set on "x" letter. I pointed it on Opera blog right after custom searches were avalible. But this retarded bug is still happening.

    What do you usually see in address bar? "server.com/page.php?random=stuff". What do you get by selecting it all and copying it into clipboard? "http://server.com/page.php?random=stuff". What do you get when selecting domain name only? "http://server.com". WHY, God, WHYYY!? No, really, what prevents you, developers without common sense, from showing the full URL in address bar?

    I do understand, that Chomium is a browser for retarded people, and that you don't want to branch away from it, cuz it will be a pain in the ass to keep your changes in later developement, but this is just plain stupid.

    I miss old smart Opera.

    P.S. When you edit your post, category is being reset. Why?

  • Lately, I've been getting an Opera internal page opera://foo.net usually right after startup if I type foo.net in the Opium address bar as a network address. It keeps the prefix hidden there, and acts as if I didn't select it for typing over.
