  • The right thing to do is to stop not URI-encoding everything. The browser should use the encoded form as a key everywhere and show it in some contexts when it matters (eg. autocompletion when typing) but show it decoded as an aid when that’s OK.

    (For basis, see also: homographs.)

  • I can think of this as a browser bug: it should treat the URI-encoded and equivalent non-URI-encoded URL as the same URL, for the history.
