Users, experts divided over replacing URLs with domains in new Chrome | Article

From SC Magazine.

In a Monday email correspondence, John LaCour, founder of PhishLabs, told that only showing the domain in the web browser does have the potential to reduce the number of phishing attack victims, but added that it is not a solution.

“Google doesn’t claim the change is a panacea for phishing and our experience has shown that there are still a large number of people who will ignore any visual indicators about the trustworthiness of the site they’re visiting,” LaCour said. “We don’t expect it to dramatically reduce the prevalence of phishing attacks.”
