Verdi mentioned that in order to display more meaningful content in the view, we should look into hiding https:// there. Historically we didn't do that so that the user would know beforehand whether they'll go to an encrypted site. Now that most sites use https, I think it makes sense to flip that around, i.e. show http:// and other protocols but hide https://. In the input we'll still show https:// and hide http://. Changing that in the future is an option but will require more invasive changes to URI fixup.
