    How would you like the TLD button on the keyboards on your touchpad worked?

    a) always show .com - it's used around the world so why not?

    b) show the local TLD for your keyboard - i.e. if you select german keyboard you get .de, english you get .com, swedish .se and so on.

    Thanks!

    arent we limited in that respect to whatever we tend to enter webpage wise? i mean my hotmail email site has .com, my google mail is .co.uk, my banking sites are .co.uk, other forums i use are .com/.net, i use a fair old mix of both .com and .co.uk tbh.

    maybe have both .com and your regional variant side by side, and remove the +=[] key to make space for it, and access your other characters from swiping at the virtual keyboard left or right, afaikafaikafaik $we$ $dont$ $have$ $any$ $gestures$ $for$ $the$ $virtual$ $keyboard$, $we$ $just$ $stab$/$prod$ $the$ $keys$ $atm$.

    Being in the US I don't care, but just a thought... tap and hold would bring up a pop up with other options? like alternative characters. Not sure if anyone would want that, but an idea.
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    Currently you get a couple of options when you tap-and-hold, on the german layout for example you get com de net org edu. If we do the local tlds you would switch com and de basically

    I would love to be able to have the .com button all the time and not have it go away ever . I end up typing it out all the time and lots of the time its not there lol aggravating . You could also add in all the possibilities with a long press I already have the .net, .org, .edu, .com. Or have it added into tweaks which ones pop up in the keyboard !!

    yeah i learned about tap-and-hold on it like two months ago. same on some of the other buttons, as well.

    I vote .com is the default, put everything else in the hold

    i vote for default tap to local TLD, tap hold for anything else...

    So all the US guys get the .com directly and all other countries .com after holding.

    +1 for .com as default and everything else in the 'hold'. Would also prefer to have the @ button visible at all times too. Make the space bar smaller to accommodate this.

    I dislike the @ button drives me insane many times I hit it when trying to hit the space bar... same happens with .com too, honestly I would rather never have either of those buttons but I'm a touch typist so typing anything on a VKB is a pain these 2 buttons just exacerbate it.

    I vote for local tld:s because I rarely open .com addresses (webosnation.com is a bookmark ;-) )

    I think people voting on this should specify what keyboard layout they use day-to-day, just to put a little more perspective on things.

    How about making a patch that gives you the possibility to decide yourself what the button will do?
    Or am I in the wrong place to suggest this?

    (using a danish keyboard so .dk would be nice)

    This is as good a place any to suggest, it may be possible, depending on whether the preferences code is running by the time the keyboard starts up.

    I use both english and french layouts. I rarely use the french one though, since I find more infos on what I'm looking for on english websites.

    So I'll go for local tld since I would then just have to switch keyboards depending on what kind of sites I want to visit, and have .fr to type french websites faster

    as first option was implemented in LunaCE is there a way to swap .COM with .DE as default in any conf/json... file? Just a hint where to search would be enough.
