Chrome Version       : 5.0.375.3 (Official Build 44229) dev
URLs (if applicable) : Any HTTP protocol URL
Other browsers tested:
Add OK or FAIL after other browsers where you have tested this issue:
     Safari 4: OK
  Firefox 3.x: OK
         IE 7: OK
         IE 8: OK

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Go to any insecure (not HTTPS) web site on the Internet.

What is the expected result? The Location bar should show the URL of the 
site you are visiting.

What happens instead? The Location bar mangles the URL of any web site you 
go to and drops the "http:// prefix from the URL, making it an invalid 
URL. This breaks one's ability to easily cut and paste URLs from the 
Location bar.

Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if

The intent is for copy and paste to include http:// even though it's not displayed in the bar.

I'm not sure which specific copy/paste bug you are seeing, so I'll dup this to the general http removal bug. See 
comment 19 there, among others, for links to specific copy/paste bugs.

It's not mainly this (mis)feature, but the arrogant and stupid way the  issue #41467  was handled that 
prompts me to not use it anymore.

Why you guy closed the  issue #41467  ?

Focus on the user and all else will follow.

Since the beginning, we've focused on providing the best user experience possible. 
Whether we're designing a new Internet browser or a new tweak to the look of the 
homepage, we take great care to ensure that they will ultimately serve you, rather 
than our own internal goal or bottom line ... And when we build new tools and 
applications, we believe they should work so well you don't have to consider how they 
might have been designed differently.
