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 think it's in the same path that's already been taken with "smart" permalinks. I once sat behind a (Swedish) user who noticed "default.asp" in the URL field and asked "did I do something wrong now, it says default something". Many browsers already gray out parts other than the domain name.

Is it time to drop/hide www. as well?
