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.

What Is A URL?

>>When you type in a URL, do you always type "http://"?<<

Heck no! Sometimes I type "ftp://". Sometimes I type "SIP:"

Why does Chrome think that "URL" == "http://"?

Than are dreamt of in your Chrome." - Shakespeare
