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.

I thought the sarcasm was obvious, but apparently many did not. I suppose we could add a _sarcasm_ tag, but that kind of ruins the effect - kind of like exlaining jokes as you go along. I guess that is the risk of sarcasm, especially in a more global environment, where such subtleties may be hard to spot. Anyhoo, I thought it was the gentlest of jabs against those who think everything Google does is good, but I am mostly a devout zealot of everything Bing...
