Browsers can let you customize a whole lot of things to enhance your web browsing experience. Among the popular browsers is the Safari on Mac that lets you surf the web seamlessly. But like many browsers, Safari is also one that doesn’t show the full URL in the address bar.
Not all browsers may show you the full URL of the website in the address bar. Not just for Safari, but the Google Chrome browser too, doesn’t let you view the full URL. It shortens the URL within the address bar with the main domain along with sun-domain (if any). Browsers show you the short domain to give you a more minimalist look, but you can always view the full URL of the website in Safari with a quick workaround.
Alongside the Google Chrome browser which allows you to show the full URL in the address bar, the Safari browser can also let you view the full URL in the address bar. Here’s what you need to do.
