Google Wants to Kill the URL (WIRED)

"Whatever we propose is going to be controversial. But it’s important we do something, because everyone is unsatisfied by URLs. They kind of suck."

I hate everything about this. I hate the similar truncated domain I get in Safari on iOS, but at least there I can understand the reasoning – lack of space. But on desktop? It’s insane. Thankfully, I’m not the only one who thinks so.
