Yes, that's by design. We can't take over http URL's or we would get
killed, teared and feathered by thousands of TSVN users.

I'm not sure what you want to do. If you have an URL like this:

<a href="svn://myserver.com/repo/trunk">Browse the repo</a>

the repository browser is opened with the correct URL as you would expect.
If you specify a http URL pointing to a repository, you don't need the
repository browser because every web browser can browse through the
repository just fine.

Then there's the 'tsvn:' urls, which open the checkout dialog.
