Google Reverses Gears: Stops Hiding Full Web Addresses in Chrome

Last August, Google decided it was a clever idea to hide the full URL in Chrome’s address bar. They thought this was going to reduce successful phishing campaigns against users. The data did not support their supposition and they announced June 7th on the Google Chromium Git

"Delete simplified domain experiment
This experiment didn’t move relevant security metrics, so we’re not
going to launch it. :frowning:

If you’re using Chrome Version 91 you will see the full URL. If not, it should appear when your browser updates. I’m not sure what they were thinking???
