CCleaner browser and the address bar.

Recommended Posts

Chrome has now decided in build 76 to do away with the https and www in the address bar ( according to the post, Google believes that certain parts of the URL are distracting and irrelevant to most Chrome users :wacko:)

Is CCleaner browser planning to do the same?

I really hope not, as I feel dumbing down is reaching a new low these days.

(clicking twice on the address bar will show the www etc )

There's the lock to the left of the URL however seeing HTTPS is also reassuring. It would be silly to remove that!

I suspect it's aimed at smartphones where removing the https and www will allow more of the domain address to be displayed on the limited width?

Reading the info given in the link I think it's on both 

The Chrome team values the simplicity, usability, and security of UI surfaces. To make URLs easier to read and understand, and to remove distractions from the registrable domain, we will hide URL components that are irrelevant to most Chrome users. We plan to hide “https” scheme and special-case subdomain “www” in Chrome omnibox on desktop and Android in M76.
