It would be useful if the slash character (/) was always shown in the on-screen keyboard of the web browser. I know it can be found through the "?123" button, but for entering a URL slash is so commonly needed it shouldn't be hidden.

This should be part of a more general context-dependent input system, so as to make some symbols more easily accessible depending on context (e.g. @ when inserting emails, / and common doman suffixes when inserting urls or emails, etc)

@kaulian Thanks for reporting. This looks like an issue, the change should have been in all layouts, but looks like we missed couple.
