Re the last bit of the show: URLs are the way that people can get to websites without having to do a Google search first. Seems pretty clear to me why they would want to start hiding them in Chrome.
My father is great at Sudoku puzzles. I’ve never gotten into them though.
People are now offended by the term ‘master’ in GitHub? WTH? Has the world gone completely mad?
