Very misleading headline. The article does not say Google wants to kill the URL; it says Google wants to take steps to make sure users can more easily see what domain they're on and make it harder for scammers to spoof legitimate domains.

It wouldn't be good journalism if the idea of the change wasn't all twisted to some conspiracy theory.
