Ok, so nobody seems to care about this, but since it doesn't act on what is typed into the address bar, it is unusable for me.
I thought a URL was a Uniform Resource Locator, which should be an unambiguous pointer to a document? Which begs the question, why does Iron ignore them? If I type http://39qt:8000/
into the address bar, and have an entry
[IP Address] 39qt
in my hosts file, why does Iron fail to resolve it correctly? All the required information is there, but Iron ignores it and searches for "39qt:8000" instead. That behaviour is WRONG.
