// Mistake on "http://"

It gives me sheer excitement to think of being able to make a mistake which would trouble generations to come... :P
The creator of the WWW has confessed that the // in a web address were actually "unnecessary" [1].
I remember being irritated when people start spelling or typing http://www..... dot com or something like that.
Since I have been using Firefox for the long time, ctrl+L, nabinkm+ctrl+inter gives me I did not enjoy the glory of typing the  whole http and colon and double slash and then w w w dot ... to get I never have enjoyed it so much.

So, we all are paying the mistake of //. However, the mistake seems tiny if you compare the impact of such wide possibilities www has opened up since then.
