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.

"We all know and love Google Chrome/Chromium (and if you don't, you're demonstrably wrong),"

Sorry, what is the sense of this phrase?
I don't love it at all. Now why should I be wrong?

Mainly, chrome has its "stupid seems simple" interface, which hides things which it should, which forces the "google look" and "google feel" upon you and which is a mix of stuff coming from other browsers.
Some people may like that philosophy, some others not.

The topic, the removal of the connection scheme, gets back onto this. I can understand why some people may like it, but I think it is plain stupid.
It is a bit like hiding file extensions on OSs where they are needed: it is just a mess that only "looks" simple but makes things worse.
