Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Firefox try this and miserably fail at it YEARS ago? I guess Google thinks, oh the sheeple will do what we tell them, we gave them Chrome and they gave us their life on a platter, so now let's hide the shady shit we do too. So ridiculous.

Not that I know of. Firefox only hides the "http:" scheme on plain HTTP URLs, and it still does it by default. I've never known Firefox to hide any part of a domain.

It was the breadcrumb method:

protocol > subdomain.domain.com > etc > etc >

where the > was the hidden portion until you clicked on it, I'll see if I can find a version that had it, you can VM it and see. It wasn't so much hide as obfuscate.

Well, it sure is weird to see this on the URLbar (in FF):

ftp.mozilla.org

I look at it, & say, what is it?
ftp: ? http: ? https ?

I should be confused by something that should be obvious.
That's normal.

So Chrome is going to "remove" something.
Big deal.
FF can't even deal with about: (much less much of anything else these days).

I think Mozilla has become a mediocre wannabe and that's sad. Hell Netscape put up more of a fight to remain unique against M$ than Firefox is doing now against $00gle, it is quite pathetic but when they get paid to do it, and yet they shamelessly claim to be the most secure, privacy focused, pro user company, it becomes a serious joke of delusional proportions. They drink their own cool-aid and that speaks for itself. Say one thing, do another, the new motto.
