The mysterious case of missing URLs and Google's AMP

When I saw a speculative article about Google wanting to "kill" URLs appear in my news feed, I didn't think too much about it. Trying to hide "ugly" URLs... well, that feels like a natural thing for an app to try and do. Designers of apps often (erroneously) assume that users cannot cope with "technical" things like URLs and try to hide them away, lest the user start bleeding from their eyes.
