Open URL option to use URLs "as-is"

Recommended Posts

Currently, in some circumstances, it's impossible to stop Alfred processing URLs in some fashion in its Open URL Action.


This can lead to Alfred "breaking" correct URLs.


It's straightforward enough to work around using a Run Script Action instead (open "{query}"), but this is non-obvious.


In some cases, like the one linked above, it's essentially impossible for Alfred to know whether it should or shouldn't percent-encode certain characters.


As a result, it'd be preferable, in my opinion, if the Open URL Action also had a "Use URL as-is" option for situations where Alfred doesn't (and realistically can't) do the right thing.
