    This cannot be the ultimate replacement for the windows address bar because it doesn’t remember the addresses typed into it.
    Also whatever is in there like google.com cannot be cleared by clearing the history.
    I’d say this bar is better than nothing though without remembering typed addresses still leaves much to be desired.

  • I’m currently working on adding this feature. I hope to have this implemented along with a couple of other features by this weekend.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    I’m having trouble with two different file paths:
    1. Environment variables: (e.g., %programfiles%, %appdata%) are not recognized properly.
    2. UNC paths tend to hit and miss. Sometimes they work OK, and sometimes they don’t. I will have to keep playing with it to see if I can get it to happen more regularly.
