Microsoft is asking for feedback on hiding the http and sub-domain from the URL in Edge

Unlike Google, however, Microsoft is taking some feedback from power users before rolling out the change to general users.

Posting on Reddit, Microsoft’s official Edge account asks:

If you have strong views either way Microsoft suggests sending feedback via the browser to the engineering team.
