Google Chrome (Canary) Lets You See the Full URL with This Simple Trick
Google Chrome is currently the world’s number one browser, both on the desktop and on mobile, so pretty much every single change that Google makes in software updates applies on millions of devices out there and impacts so many users.
One of the modifications that the search giant has implemented lately automatically hides certain parts of the URL for a more simplified approach.
For example, in the latest version of Google Chrome for the stable channel, you no longer see the HTTPS prefix because Google claims a substantial part of the web already uses this secure protocol. Those which do not are given a not secure warning in the URL bar.
But it goes without saying this simplified approach to display URLs in Google Chrome isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, especially because there’s no way to restore the original behavior. So if you’d rather see the full URL rather than Google’s new mode, there’s not much you can do about it.
