“http://” dropped in latest Google Chrome build

Google has removed the http:// from latest Chrome brower builds. The change was noticed when a user reported it as a bug in the issues section of the chromium Google Code page. A coder then responded that this is a new “feature” and not a bug. Many of the comments that followed were of negativity. People don’t seem to be too fond of the http:// removal. The reason behind this change is obvious: the URL scheme bears little meaning to most people using a browser – they know it’s there and how to type it, but it doesn’t indicate anything to them. Since computing has been about abstracting away complexity for a while now, it was only a matter of time before browser makers started removing this piece of web history.
