Automatically remove/ignore whitespace in address bar

  • Either whitespace should be automatically removed when pasting a URL into the address bar, or whitespace in the address bar should be ignored when we hit return/go. It's needlessly annoying pasting word-wrapped URLs.

  • How might V be supposed to differentiate between wanted whitespace (which is urlencoded) and unwanted whitespace?

    I can see stripping whitespace from start and end of the url, though (but I guess it already does..)

  • @morg42 Unwanted whitespace won't be URL encoded, of course. It will just be whitespace, which doesn't belong in a URL anyway.

    That's why other browsers started dropping it so pasting was more convenient and "works like you'd expect".

  • Maybe if server return 404 error, browser could send new request without spaces.
