re: Why People Don't Like When Chrome Messes with URLs VIEW POST


What do you mean exactly by "hide parts of the URL"?

Isn't it a matter of, I don't know, right-clicking somewhere, or pressing some key, to re-obtain the full URL (copied to the clipboard or whatever)? I can't imagine that they'd be completely hiding the "real" URL from any remotely sophisticated user.

I always have the idea that "dumbing stuff down" or making things 'proprietary' is more a Microsoft or an Apple thing (although Google aren't completely altruistic saints either of course).
