FYI, Google is trying to kill web URLs Google wants users to use Google search as the access point for all content on the web. They are doing this by: 1. Removing visible URLs in Chrome 2. Penalizing sites for not using Google AMP 3. Removing URLs from search results

Interesting, someone sent me a message about a chrome extension that tries to restore the URLs to searches

Did you complain about Apple doing this over 5 years ago?

Yes But also Apple doesn’t have search, domain name registry, DNS services, or is pushing new http protocols. Safari has single digit market share and usage Apple’s was about extreme simplification of the UI in accordance to their design philosophy

That story was published 5 1/2 years ago. What has happened since then?

Number 2 is what we suffer the most, we lose a lot SEO power when we don’t use AMP.

I've heard sites that load faster than their AMP versions get penalized.

I don’t know about the other 2, but the 1st is not quite accurate. We’re not removing the ability to see URLs; just making the most readily-understood part of the origin the default view. People being confused about what origin they’re on is a real problem we’re trying to solve.

Hmmm. How is that not “removing visible URLs” by default?
