Coming in 4.11! I like web shortcuts. It's a feature I use daily to be more productive. When I noticed some shortcuts were broken I went out to fix them and add a few improvements. Here is an overview:
- We now use an encrypted connection if possible. This works for Wikipedia, google shortcuts and DuckDuckGo (bug: 308029) - 20 shortcuts are updated to use a new query. - 9 broken shortcuts that could not be fixed are removed. - 4 new ones have been added to replace them: freecode (fc), Google Shopping (ggs), KDE Projects (kp) and Qt4 for developers. - When you add a new shortcuts it copies a link from your clipboard (if available) and you can add a query placeholder by clicking on a button next to the text box. (bug: 146880, 146879) This makes the whole process a piece of cake. See the screengrab.
Hope you like it! Special thanks to David Faure and Dawit Alemayehu for reviewing my patches and pointing out any mistakes.
+Aaron Seigo Sure! How could I not know this… :) The reason why I stopped using web shortcuts from all over the place (and from krunner): Chromium's poor integration with virtual desktops/activities. This isn't really KDE SC's fault, but more Chromium or generally missing XDG like specifications how to deal with this.
