Google Chrome Kills Off WWW In URLs

Material Design has arrived in several Google products in recent years, and now it’s time for the tech giant Google’s most used and popular web browser, of course, I am talking about the Chrome which is about to receive enhancements focusing on this kind of visual.

From the version 69, the users of the tech giant Google’s most used and popular web browser, Chrome will simply notice that the browser will be whiter and with a very different interface for iOS.

Users who are on the PC will simply receive the news in a less drastic update, leaving the gray color aside for something whiter, also adding a more rounded look – especially in the list of open tabs that will look like the notch, which is currently a popular trend on multiple smartphones.

Other features that will come with the new version of the tech giant Google’s Chrome browser will simply include support for the native Windows 10 notifications and improvements to prevent third-party applications from crashing the program, making it virtually impossible to inject code into Chrome – something similar to Flash, which is disabled by default and can be turned on according to the user demand.

Now while we talking about Flash, the tech giant Google’s most used and popular web browser, of course, Chrome will automatically shut down this plugin whenever Chrome restarts and the search giant repeated that support in its browser will be completely removed in December 2020.

However, now apart from the design, we will stop seeing the full web addresses in Chrome 69 after a rather controversial Google decision that had not previously announced with the arrival of this new version of the market’s leading web browser.

The tech giant Google’s Chrome browser is the most widely used web browser in the world with a 70% share, and the tech giant Google is taking advantage of this with a series of controversial decisions.

Although we already know all the news of Chrome 69, there is one that has gone unnoticed. With this version, the Chrome browser will no longer display the “WWW” or “m.” in the address or URL bar, hiding it from websites because it considers them “trivial subdomains”. This decision comes with the idea of the tech giant Google itself to change the concept of URLs.

Still with this version you can force Chrome to show the full address in the browser, either deactivating the flag ‘Omnibox UI Hide Steady-State URL Scheme and Trivial Subdomains’ in “chrome://flags/#omnibox-ui-hide-steady-state-url-scheme-and-subdomains“; or in a much simpler way by double-clicking on the direction of the address bar, and copying and pasting it in another place where the complete address will be displayed.

Different experts point out that right now two completely different sites can be seen in the same address bar, and this could favor the topic of phishing. In this way, the user could be tricked into believing that he/she is on a web page when he/she really is in another, hence, this feature leads attacker to steal his/her credentials.

Many consider that this strange change is the long-term plan of the tech giant Google to hide its AMP domain and do it in this way indistinguishable from the real domain.
