Official: Google Chrome 69 kills off the World Wide Web (in URLs)

Two things.

For some odd reason, I sometimes get redirected to the mobile version of certain sites, and some of these sites don't have a "go to desktop version" button. My solution is usually to delete the "m." part from the URL, or replace it with "www." if it's being a bitch that day.

Soma FM has a radio channel / station called Groove Salad, one of my favourites. The "DJ" is a computer generated voice called "Big URL" (pronounced "Big Earl"). I don't think they'll like Google shortening that to "Big", that'll ruin the joke.
