If we are supposed to be looking after end users, why aren’t we outraged that we can’t see the full URL - particularly since Google is most likely trying to   hide how pervasive it is in everyone’s lives

As spotted by Android Police <https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/06/12/google-resumes-its-senseless-attack-on-the-url-bar-hides-full-addresses-on-chrome-canary/>, new flags in the developer versions of the popular browser now want to hide the URL path. So for an article like this one, instead of "https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/06/google-is-messing-with-the-address-bar-again-new-experiment-hides-url-path/, <https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2020/06/google-is-messing-with-the-address-bar-again-new-experiment-hides-url-path/,>" the address bar would show "arstechnica.com <http://arstechnica.com/>."
