On hidden URL in Chrome
The security issue is that browsers need to make the domain name portion of the URL clearly visible. I hope that the smart folks working on Chrome can figure out a way to do that without castrating the browser’s ability to easily share links.
It’s a classic case of:
- Something must be done!
- This (killing URLs) is something.
- Something has been done.
Technically, obfuscating the URL seems to solve the security issue. But technically, decapitation seems to solve a headache.Jeremy Keith
