Chrome is experimenting with URL display again

Twitter is hilarious (but not really). I respect Jake and the work he does for the web and this week one tweet of his really took off (in a not so good way).

Today I watched the video and couldn’t agree with the approach more, check out the video.

In this episode, Jake makes the case that URLs are impossible for humans to interpret, especially when it comes to security. What are browsers doing today to overcome that? And, is there a better way?
