I have whitespaces in some local files. Is there a possibility, for example an addon, to change the way the URLs of such files are represented in Chrome’s address bar?

For example instead of

file:///C:/Javascript/MDN%20→%20Destructuring%20Assignment%20(Doc).html

I would prefer to see

file:///C:/Javascript/MDN → Destructuring Assignment (Doc).html

Of course, when I copy the URL I want the escaping to stay.

Firefox does it this way.

  • No. You are making the URLs invalid by unescaping the escaped characters. They are escaped for a reason. – DavidPostill May 21 '19 at 19:37

    This does not answer the question. – Nils May 23 '19 at 14:42

No. Chrome extensions do not have any control over the way URLs are displayed in the address bar.

  • +1 for pointing out that this is not possible using addons. – Nils May 28 '19 at 3:08

I have switched back to Firefox.

    No need to downvote, so far the only solution that works. – Nils May 28 '19 at 3:08
