More consistent with browsers on other platforms, less consistent with
every other GTK application.

The discussion so far has mentioned that beginners enter URLs more
often, and leave editing to the more experienced people.
While that may be partially true, I think it depends more on what type
of person you are. I know a lot of people who never type URLs in because
they can't remember them, particularly remembering whether a site
is .com or .com.au.
I agree that people editing URLs is uncommon. However from my
experience, people typing them in is also fairly uncommon.
