I want to take a moment to register my dissatisfaction with the chrome developers.
I think the way they are handling bug 41467 is disrespectful to their user community. Given the uproar surrounding the change why haven't they provided an extension or a user option to display the "http://" part of URLs? I think their behavior shows that they are not listening to their users.
Chrome devs, please give us users more freedom.
Does anyone know of an extension to put the http back in the URL?
