As a DWIM thing, it may make sense?  But, yes, it shouldn't be the
initial input.  As a default it's nice, though.  But then perhaps it
should say (in the prompt) what the default is, which will make the
default very long...

Other usability nits in that function: It uses widget-move, which will
echo the contents, which is very annoying, because that means that it
flashes a large number of things in the echo area.

And the prefix argument to `w' should probably be to act the same as in
eww; i.e., use `shr-external-browser' for the browser.
