Sucks. I like that button.

Try tapping and holding on the period button? It. It may only appear in certain text fields (URL entry, for one)

It was removed/hidden away during the beta's because it was in the way and kept getting hit.

You guys are awesome.

Now, what about the / key?

I have to open the .?123 page to get to that when entering a web address. It used to be right on the main keyboard when entering text in the address bar.

So far this is the most annoying change, to me.

That seems to be the only way to get a / these days :(

If it helps, did you know that you can press the .?123 button, keep your thumb held down and drag it to the key you want (in this case "/") and then release your thumb to immediately go back to the letter keyboard?

+2 I didn't know that, but it's absolutely awesome!

Well yeah, that works. It's good enough.

Thanks

Trust me, it is much better this way. Because of the "unified" URL bar, all my searches were "How.comto.comtie.coma.comtie" in Beta 1. :cool:

Pretty sure the handful of people in here who liked the .com button are literally the only individuals on this planet who did.

That was the most annoying thing in the world.
