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.

www should have never been there in the first place. Domain admins should redirect www.example.com to example.com

www is retarded. Always was and always will be.


so is ftp.example.com retarded? smtp.example.com retarded? sip.example.com retarded?

No. They are sane sensible subdomains separating different services which may or may not be based on the same continent, let alone in the same data centre. Think of something on the scale of ibm.com instead of "Bobs Corner Store Website". IBM do a redirect as you state, but it is from ibm.com to www.ibm.com, same with microsoft.com
