        <pre>.dev it seems has been one of the most popular .tld's used by developers for local development even though of course there was always a chance that .dev could someday be used by actual sites.

With Google officially releasing that tld to the public next month, I assume there will be a mass exodus for users searching for a new .tld. It appears the recommended tld is actually .test which will always be available for that purpose: <a href="https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2606">https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2606</a>.

The problem is, when going to example.test it performs a search rather than attempting to load the site. Having to type a protocal each time or having to end with / is not ideal. Is there plans for Webkit to recognize .test to work as expected without workarounds in preparation for developers switching from .dev?</pre>
