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.

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


You already see such "shortened forms" in advertising material, and in germany sometimes on police cars, reading "polizei.de/bla" or something similar. It's obvious you can enter it exactly that way into the browser's address bar, but many browsers complete it to a full standard URI form, including schema, server, and maybe even page name (of the default page).
