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.

Some of you people need to lighten up. I tend to disagree strongly with a lot of thom's opinions, but even i realized he was just taking the piss with the chrome comment.

Anyway i wholeheartedly agree with this change and in fact main stream media has already begun to do our job for us in this regard. It's been forever since i saw billboard, ad, tv promo add the http(s) part. The only thing that matters is how it is implemented and obviously google has some work cut out for themselves in this regard. My only surprise is that apple didn't beat them to the punch in this regard.
