Yosemite Version of Safari Only Shows the Domain Name in Address Field

David Yanofsky, writing for Quartz:

At Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference today the company rolled out a new look for its web browser, Safari. Apple executives didn’t point it out, but sharp-eyed observers have noticed one significant change to the interface. The address bar truncates URLs to the domain-name level.

This means that a URL such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ansel_Adams will show up as en.wikipedia.org.

Seems like something that ought to be a preference setting. (Maybe it already is, but if so I haven’t found it.)
