Reflections from a Swede in Norway.

Here you will find my small graffiti board where I write about things I come to think about.

In my blog, I write about the general unfairness of life, about spam mail, vintage computers, board games, Norwegians, current and not-so-current affairs, technology and whatever else occurs to me — in other words, a glorious mess. All opinion expressed here are of course my own, and all similarities with any living people is of course intentional.

Since I don’t seem to be able to comment Jesper’s question in his blog, I can answer it here instead.

[...] Ctrl+Enter will [now] give the .se top domain instead, but is that the right solution? I assumed that those running Swedish Windows probably would prefer to visit sites under .se, but is that correct? [...] Do you visit more .se domains or .com domains? What do you think we should choose?

I must say that I don’t really understand why you have to choose at all. Do as we do in Opera – make it possible for the user to decide for himself:

[Settings for server name completion in Opera]
Domain names for completion is configurable in Opera.

Additionally, in Opera you don’t need to remember to press Ctrl, it is enough to write the name and press Enter, and Opera will add both www and com (or se) for you without you having to think about it. Nice, isn’t it?

Tack för svaret :)

Jag håller med om att det hade varit smidigast att ha ett användargränssnitt för att ändra inställningen, men tyvärr har jag väldigt lite inflytande över det. Jag var i kontakt med IE-teamet för ett tag sen och föreslog detta, men huruvida det kommer att implementeras i IE7 vet jag idag inte. Lite synd, för allt som verkar behövas är en ny dialogruta & testning -- inställningen är redan konfigurerbar genom en registerinställning.

Det jag dock kan göra är se till att standardalternativet är vettigt så som funktionen är implementerad idag.

Mvh, Jesper

Förresten, borde det inte vara "...maskin på det lokala nätverket" isf "...lokal nätverksmaskin"? :)

"Lokal nätverksmaskin" är en översättning av "local network machine", men jag håller med om att formuleringen kan vara lite klumpig (på båda språken).
