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.

Is it time to drop/hide www. as well?


No, because 'www' is part of the actual address - www.domain.com and domain.com aren't necessarily the same thing.

You know what? 99.999% of the people don't know that, and don't need to know.

They *should* be the same. When they are different, it should be considered a bug, because it will be the cause of many mistakes.
