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.

Member since:

I think it's a natural evolution, just like Windows Explorer (and file managers in other operating systems) has replaced the text-based address bar with a more logical breadcrumb control.

I don't find breadcrumb to be any more logical (more like rather annoying, if anything) but maybe it's just me.
I seriously hope we don't get the breadcrumb trend implemented in web browsers address bars any time soon.
