Address completion by date?
 
I'm back to using OmniWeb now that I have a computer that can handle it (a MacBook Pro with 3 GB of RAM :)), but one feature from Camino that I miss is address-bar autocompletion sorted by most recent view instead of alphabetically. That is, when I start typing in a URL in the address bar, it would be most helpful for the most-recently viewed matches to be at the top. Maybe the sort order could be customizable in the preferences?

Rather completion by URL-length...

To be honest, I'd prefer the (for me) more logical approach of address completion by URL-components.

The way it is implemented now is that everytime I go to [url]http://www.hurriyetim.com.tr/[/url], the first entry shown is that of an ad because it starts with a "_". Since Hurriyetim's homepage is "http://www.hurriyet.com.tr/anasayfa/" (which is one of the next entries) and you can't really see the full URL in my URL-list, it really annoys me.

The logical path is for me by URL-components, the first entry being the full hostname + protocol ([url]http:///aaa.bbbb.cc/[/url]) and the other entries by component + historical

Alphabetic is probably the most illogic way I've ever seen.

Historic doesn't make sense either if you are visiting a lot news sites, since when I enter the URL to go to a news website, I don't want to re-read the last news, but rather go to the homepage or into one of the categories.

Just my 2 €cents.

That's why, as I said, it should be a user preference. That shouldn't be too hard to implement.

I'd vote for sorting by most recent view, too.

Just a hint for imdat: You can see much more of the URLs in the list if you use a standalone location bar instead of the location element in the icon bar (or whatever that's called in English).

Just hit Alt-Cmd-L.

I like it the way it is.
