Google is huge, no doubt. And they are one company that has a reputation that is well earned. They are fast, easy and user friendly. Chrome is my browser of choice for my PC, better, faster, stronger, and the only hack proof browser : ) I actually downloaded Chrome at my work because the companies recent computer upgrade is weak sauce and they are using IE 7, which is super slow. Once I got Chrome up and going everything was 2x as fast, no joke. I’m not an IT guy, and when I found out about the vulnerabilities with Chrome and internal servers and the workplace, I sadly went back to the slow Internet Explorer and sacrificed my speed for policy. But for personal PC use nothing is faster and safer.
Anyway, Google has now released in their developer version of Chrome with another cool tweak. In the URL’s, no more www or http crap. Not like I use that anyway, if I want to go to any website and I know the URL I just type blahblahblah.com and I’m there.
Some concerns answered:
First, what happens in other cases for example where the scheme is https or FTP? Google’s solution is to show those schemes in those cases.
The second concern raised was what happens when copying the URL from Chrome and pasting into another browser that requires the http:// scheme? Google’s solution, your clipboard should automatically still grab the http:// part, we just don’t reveal it. And it’s true, copying a URL from Chrome over to anywhere else will reveal the http:// as normal.
