As far as I know, currently only Opera _partially_ accepts URLs without
protocol by adding "http://" when <input type="url"> with incomplete URL is

Other browsers (at least Firefox and Chrome) do not allow URLs without protocol
inside <input type="url"> at all.

This situation is very likely caused by current ambiguity in the HTML spec, and
this ambiguity should be resolved.
