URL input box should not have autocorrect #56

In the browser, the URL bar currently has autocorrect enabled:


This causes several problems, for example:

  • Input isn't actually passed to the box until the keyboard is finished with the word, so autocomplete doesn't start until the user selects an autocorrect word or presses Space
  • URLs aren't normally perfect for the language you're native to. The keyboard "helpfully" trying to correct them is annoying (" can become Gogol. com")

How to fix it

Set the inputMethodHint to Qt.ImhNoPredictiveText in AddressBar.qml. Note that you can set multiple input hints on one widget by adding a bar (|) between the values.
