I’m ditching Chrome because of the http:// stripping.
Friday, April 16th, 2010
New development builds, and apparently the Beta build of Chrome for the Mac, strip the ‘http://’ part from the URL input field. Since I run Chromium for Linux, which uses nightly builds of Chrome, I am already affected by this retarded decision.
For this reason I will no longer be using Chrome, nor will I recommend Chrome to anybody anymore. In fact, I will actively recommend using any browser other than Chrome, including Internet Explorer 6.
I could explain why such a ‘trivial’ change upsets me so much that I’d stop using an otherwise… promising.. product, but life is too short to argue with stupid people, so I’ll just leave it at that.
