Description

6 years ago
Often, I want to visit plain text files which I have visited before.  But the AwesomeBar will only match the URL of the file, and since there is no page title, that's all it will match.

Instead, it should try to generate a page title from text within the text file, after stripping away initial whitespace and punctuation.  (for example, getting rid of lines of dashes ------ and blank lines)

Similarly, for HTML pages with no title, maybe it could generate a title from early text or text inside heading tags.
