Google Chrome walks back on this irritating change — Hurray for full URLs!

For the past few years, Google has been cutting short URLs in the Chrome browser Omnibox search bar due to security concerns because it was supposedly difficult for users to identify which domains were safe and not a security threat. 

In a report released today by Engadget and based on a document spotted by Android Police, this is all about to change as Google will end its battle with the URL bar and start showing full URL addresses once again in Chrome. Google’s attempt to oversimplify the address bar with its Omnibox approach could never truly get it right and became a highly criticized albatross often cited by users as a failure that did not improve their browsing experience. There was even a time where Google wanted to completely remove the URL in its entirety and simply show search terms.
