I'd like you all give attention for a second at the "search engine question".
I basically imposed ( :) ) the actual solution because of clearness of use
and of coding. Moreover, all major browsers adopt it, so I thought it could be
the right one.
But... in KDE we have some things done strangely. Like this "default search
engine" to be set in the webshortcuts settings. I just exposed my point of
view about (that is not the "default search engine" really, but the default
"web shortcut". And I can easily assume people doesn't know and/or doesn't use
Moreover, this (not really being the default search engine..) can be set as
none, letting easily crash an app assuming there has to be *one* search engine
We also had one discussion here and one merge request rejected
(http://gitorious.org/rekonq/mainline/merge_requests/2266). This patch solves
the "none" search engine set, defaulting it to "google".
Moreover I noticed adawit (that is also KUriFilter developer..) committed some
enhancements to that chain (available in SC 4.5).
So, considering that either solutions are enough "safe", what's your preferred
choice? And why?
1) leave things as they are now
2) drop default engine settings in the "General UI", using default webshortcut
as default engine (defaulting to google when not set)?
PS: Pano, after we decided for the string freeze we changed more strings that
during all the development period :D
I'm thinking to an beta2 release for the next week, starting a real string
freeze period and saying sorry about in i18n ml.
