I just read an article saying that there's going to be some changes when it comes to web address suffixes (e.g, .com, .org, etc). They're opening the door to creating custom suffixes (e.g., www.home.macrumors, http://malicious.spammers). The article does a pretty good job stating both the pros and cons of this change. I'm mildly excited about the pros, but frightfully worried about the cons. Namely this will make it much harder for day-to-day users to detect a malicious web URL, and it'll generally be harder to remember the URL. I'm very interested in hearing other web designers/developers thought on this news. It's definitely something to be aware of at the very least. New Flavors for Addresses on the Web Are on the Way ~ NY Times Guess I'll also have to update my regular expression for detecting URLs Edit: Just read at MacWorld that the likely cost of buying a suffix will be in the 6-figure range ($100,000), which will reduce malicious possibilities by a little bit, and keep too many people from buying one.
