Checkbox to not escape the {query} portion of a Web Search

Recommended Posts

I would like a checkbox next to the "Encode query..." and "Encode spaces" that disables the character escaping for the {query}.

 

Rationale:

For us developers who use Alfred everyday in our workflow there are times (for example when working on REST services)

where I'd like to create a set of searches like:

 

keyword: s3dev

urlhttp://aws-portal.mycompany.com/s3/pre-prod/{query}

 

where I can trigger it in alfred:

 

       s3dev 5002/some/rest/endpoint/5012

 

and it will take me to

 

    http://aws-portal.mycompany.com/s3/pre-prod/5002/some/rest/endpoint/5012

 

Currently it will escape the forward slashes (and other url characters).

 

I'm hoping this will be a popular suggestion and easy to implement seeing as it's just bypassing whatever escapeString() Alfred is using.
