i get it, from an outside perspective getting this mad about Chrome hiding URLs seems a little ridiculous, but they are the building blocks of basically the whole Internet supposedly for sake of making the web more friendly, when we have all the reason in the world to suspect they're taking average users further from the metal so they don't hear the grinding noises when Google and other ad companies start doing nefarious shit with it
I am so confused. How the heck is hiding URLs more user-friendly even superficially? Sharing URLs *is* user-friendly!
This is a cyberspace version of the thing where Apple tried to spin getting rid of the headphone jack as “user-friendly”.
Sometimes I cannot believe that anyone would lie as blatantly as tech companies do, which is unfortunate because while I’m still reeling from their last lie they’ve moved onto an even bigger one.
