Why do I have to click "link from the web" to paste in a URL? This view (after clicking) could just be the default view.

    Guess they did it to make it consistent with the old design, where "from the web" was a different "tab". Jun 30, 2015 at 14:24

I agree; but so as not to confuse the users with the "link from the web" sentence without forewords, I'd propose to rephrase it like this (and obviously remove "cancel" button):

  • "cancel" can be changed to "clear", for those too lazy to press backspace. Jun 30, 2015 at 14:37
  • @Sha what about cmd-backspace? :)

  • @Sha cmd-backspace will clean the whole field...

  • In Windows it just delete whole words - in case of URL it would work, but only a few are aware of this magical feature. ;) Jun 30, 2015 at 14:42
  • @Sha On mac, cmd-delete removes all the contents i.stack.imgur.com/tF2KG.gif, the word by word removal is for option-backspace
