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 copy/paste fom the url feed into pidgin sessions quite often. I'm guessing lots of programs don't know what to do with text if it's missing the leading http(s). Did they properly implement all the rules around partial url selection?
