Microsoft Edge Drops HTTP and WWW Tags in the Address Bar
The new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge typically follows in the footsteps of Google Chrome, and some of the changes that Google introduces for its browser also make their way to Microsoft’s application.
One of these tweaks concern the address bar and could be coming to all Edge users rather sooner than later.
Google Chrome no longer displays HTTP and WWW tags in the address bar, technically providing users with a cleaner experience when running the app. And by the looks of things, Microsoft is also planning a similar approach for Microsoft Edge, so the browser will soon switch to this cleaner address bar too.
More specifically, the URL in the address bar would no longer be displayed as https://www.softpedia.com but only as softpedia.com after Microsoft makes this change in the browser.
Change already in testing phase
