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.

The confusion with http:// and whether "www" is needed or not is so bad that advertisers have started to say “search online for ‘x’” instead of giving an actual web address.

And that works *so* well, doesn't it? Remember the fuss a few months back, of people unable to find Facebook after it dropped to #2 in Google's results?
