    Superfluous URL Protocol

    huong_ho888

      Many apps (e.g. Outlook) don't include the http protocol prefix "http://" when the app user wants to insert or update the link. This saves an unnecessary removal effort from the user (i.e. an extra "Ctrl X" to remove it).  Many new sites are moving toward the secure https. I suspect that it was part of the legacy code.  It is incorrect to assume that the protocol will always be "http://".  The current implementation is suboptimal and not 508 fully compliant.  To use the hyperlink, the user will have to either overlay the 3-part URL or copy the host and path name.  The developer of this feature should use this technique Get URL and URL Parts in JavaScript | CSS-Tricks as an example to construct hostname and pathname.
