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 dont use chrome, and OSnews should pack its chrome love and let me be the judge.

about http://

do remember there are browsers out there that actually handles ftp protocol. like, browsers with 90+% market share?

that little space saving is not important to me.

and I dont even know why such a small, mostly meaningless change on chrome should be given special attention?
