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.

Most people know that things are secure when they see the 'padlock'. Surely this is the only icon that is needed.

For most users everything else is http. The average user will never browse an FTP directory, although they might follow a link that takes them to an FTP download
