Note that HTML5 seems specify the behavior of escaping and unescaping for addressbar.
Future URI module may have such methods.

=begin
 URI.encode's default behavior is to follow RFC 2732 [http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2732] which includes # in the list of characters to URI encode.
 
 The updated RFC 3896 [http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3986#section-2.2] includes # in the list of reserved characters.
 
 This bug is present in Ruby 1.8 too.
 
 Observed behavior:
 
   require 'uri'
   enc = URI.encode("http://google.com/moo?testo=true#anchor21")
   => "http://google.com/moo?testo=true%23anchor21"
 
 Expected behavior:
 
   require 'uri'
   enc = URI.encode("http://google.com/moo?testo=true#anchor21")
   => "http://google.com/moo?testo=true#anchor21"
=end
