For instance, bbc.com works without it.

Though the 'click here' may have to be updated.

All browsers accept URLs without the prefix when typed into the address bar, the URL itself won't have changed.

A little trick ~I found out agaes ago but might be worth mentioning. If you want click here for example, just type bbc into the address bar then press Ctrl and Enter simultaneously the bbc is the wrapped with click here. and .com.

Works in ie and Opera and I believe Firefox

It's extremely rare that I use the address bar. The sites I visit regularly are in Bookmarks and those I don't know properly are invariably found via Google - easier than typing the full address in the address bar and not prone to errors introduced by me.
