Hi,

let me add a historical side remark. URLs were never meant to be revealed to the user. See the following screenshot of the first web browser and editor called "WorldWideWeb" from Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau:

See, no address bar. It is not hidden. There is no address bar.
There is also no bookmark list because links could be managed as easy as a copy&paste of text itself.

wonderful world
Matthias
