The 'magic' seems to be in the '.new'. What it seems to be doing is requests are redirected to a google document creation URL. (e.g. doc.new becomes a request to docs.google.com/document/u/0/create) - which from the quartz article was an older hack for the same thing.
Ah, didn’t realize new was a valid TLD
