Google Now this is something that I find really interesting. We all know and love Google Chrome/Chromium (and if you don't, you're demonstrably wrong), but Google recently made a change in the developer version that ruffled some feathers: the URL field will no longer show the "http://". This made a lot of people very upset.

I don't use Chrome/Chromium so I can't comment specifically on the browser itself, however, I can't imagine what difference it would make to John Q. Public if the "http://" were displayed in the address field or not. Most browsers will automatically fill in the http and the ".com" for you if you enter a partial address. People who are griping about this are the same people that would bellyache if you tried to hang them with a new rope!
