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 better, I frequent a website that has a subdomain other than "www". In some browsers (IE 8, most notably) the "www" is automagically added to the address for me, which triggers a "not found" error. In most modern browsers this is not an issue: What I type is what I get. Fortunately, I rarely need to use IE 8, and never on my home computers.
