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.

Even more radical

Firefox hides http://www. with a small script quite easily. Since many years I got rid of the location bar entirely and type URLs directly in tabs. Placed at the bottom of the window, tabs are the only part of the GUI I need to display. Also, I hate Google Chrome/Chromium (so demonstrably I wasn't brainwashed and I still can acknowledge that a web browser made by the biggest advertisement company in the world has to be the biggest software joke ever).
