The end of URLs??

WTH?
So are they really going to "kill the URL", i.e. outright replace URLs with something else? How is this even possible?
Or are they just going to stop displaying URLs as-is?

How could it be? The url is the adress of the page. It's impossible to avoid using urls. How could I access, for example, the page [link removed by moderator], if I didn't know the url ?!
