Router test for urls with encoded characters #1156
After some research the situation in Firefox seems pretty complicated. The three major bug reports which relate to this behavior are:
The last one claims to be fixed (or rather the one it's marked as duplicate of) but the test I wrote for Backbone still fails. I do not think this will be resolved in the near future in Firefox.
But when the URL is encoded, the regexp has to match against encoded value and gets really ugly. Or are you referring to something else?
I would favor the previous behavior, because I don't see the value in the ability to have encoded characters in the URL to match routes. Who really write routes like this
