Google implements "always show full URL" option in Google Chrome

[Image: chrome-always-show-full-url-1536x811.png]

Chromium, the open source part of the Google Chrome browser, got a new experimental flag recently that, when enabled, added a context menu option to the address bar to show the full URL of the active site. My take on the initial feature was that it was more or less worthless as it only showed the full 'URL for that site; a reload, click on a link or the loading of a new address would return to the crippled status quo.

It appears that the Chromium developers were not finished with the implementation. If you use Chromium or Chrome Canary with the flag enabled, you will notice that it has been turned into a toggle.

A right-click on the URL in the Chrome address bar and the selection of "Always show full URLs" toggles the feature.

When enabled, Chrome will always show the full URL of the active site including the protocol that is used and the www/m part if it is used by the site. The default state is disabled and Chrome will omit the information in that case.

Google plans to roll out the feature in Chrome 83 Stable. The company announced recently that it will skip Chrome 82 due to the Coronavirus pandemic so that Chrome 83 will be the next stable version of the web browser.

Google Chrome users who run Chrome Canary (or Chromium) currently may enable the new feature in the following way:

1. Load chrome://flags in the web browser's address bar.
2. Search for Context menu show full URLs or load chrome://flags/#omnibox-context-menu-show-full-urls directly.
3.Set the status of the experimental flag to enabled.
4. Restart the web browser.
5. Right-click on the address in Chrome after the restart and check the "Always show full URLs" context menu option.

Chrome will display the full page address from that moment on for all visited sites.

Closing Words

Finally, an option to show the full page URL again in the Chrome web browser (without having to install a browser extension). I still think it is ridiculous that Google removed the information in first place (and that other browser makers followed). Vital information like the URL should never be manipulated in my opinion.

Now You: Full URL or just some part of it, what is your preference?
