Judging by the publish date of this article, apparently this nonsense has been going on for a year and I just haven’t noticed. Or maybe it’s not been enabled by default until a recent update. But regardless, I’ve noticed lately that Chrome is trying to do the same thing Safari did: hide parts of the URL like the “www.” That would be fine, except that when you go to edit the URL, the whole thing jumps around because then it has to insert all the missing pieces. It might be great for people who rarely touch the address bar, but for web developers, it’s no bueno. The secret is to go to chrome://flags, search Steady select Disabled on all the search results, and restart Chrome.
