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.

KIO protocols are a core part of KDE. We use those ftp://, http:// or fish:// to locate ourself between the view and the data location. For a web developer, the different between http://site.com/index.htm and file://site.com/index.htm is really important. protocol:// should be improved instead of hidden, when useful, it become powerful.
