Editing a URL in DevonTHINK's browser

Continuing the discussion from Editing Bar and URL field:

I am wondering if there is a way (perhaps a control key or an option) to change the behavior of the url bar?

I would like it to behave like the omnibar in chrome at least as far as letting me edit the URL.
Currently when I click it, the url is then opened in another application like Safari.

No need to do the fancy stuff Google does with their omnibar (calculations, search, etc.) but I would like to be able to change the url by typing or copy/pasting.

Is there a method I can use?

The only possibility right now is to script this, e.g. have a look at Scripts > Tabs… for similar scripts. E.g. here’s a basic example:

tell application id "DNtp"
	set theURL to display name editor "Change Location" info "URL:" default answer "https://"
	if theURL is not "" and theURL is not "https://" then set URL of current tab of think window 1 to theURL
end tell

Would you be willing to consider the idea of simply being able to click, type, and hit enter as useful?

We consider most ideas but no promises.
