Bug #17029: URI.parse considers https://example.com/### invalid when browsers consider it valid

----------------------------------------
I have a form with `<input type="url" required>` and in the backend, I try to extract the domain with `URI.parse(url).host`

A user was able to submit a value like `https://example.com/###` which passed the browser's validation check, but failed by `URI.parse` with this error:

```
        3: from /Users/helix/.rbenv/versions/2.7.1/lib/ruby/2.7.0/uri/common.rb:234:in `parse'
        2: from /Users/helix/.rbenv/versions/2.7.1/lib/ruby/2.7.0/uri/rfc3986_parser.rb:73:in `parse'
        1: from /Users/helix/.rbenv/versions/2.7.1/lib/ruby/2.7.0/uri/rfc3986_parser.rb:67:in `split'
URI::InvalidURIError (bad URI(is not URI?): "https://example.com/###")
```

You can try the browser's behavior at MDN's demo: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTML/Element/input/url

This is what the MDN page says about validation:

The syntax of a URL is fairly intricate. It's defined by WHATWG's URL Living Standard ( https://url.spec.whatwg.org/ ) and is described for newcomers in our article What is a URL? ( https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Learn/Common_questions/What_is_a_URL )
