Not on my end - I just get a "this site can't be reached".
If I type "maps.google" in a search query on Google, I get the first suggestion being https://maps.google.com, but if I just put it in a browser, I get a generic "this site can't be reached" message.

Might be something special on your end (or not so special on mine).

Yup, once a person has been there, it's definitely easier. For those that have never been on the site and are typing it from a brochure, business card or other Offline advertising, it could be a challenge. Online - no problem, just click the link.

But everyone is trainable.

From a "typed in" perspective, there is still a risk. I think Artashes was referring more to the situations where someone has already been on the site, or clicked a link. Next time you go to the browser, it would auto populate the extension as you wer ealready there.

It's the one thing I HATE about mistyping a domain name - the next few days/weeks, I still get prompted with the wrong spelling

The first time through, the user still needs to be trained as to which extension they should be going to.

Unless you clear cookies and cache etc. then everything will be lost. People will have to be learned how to use it and if people cannot be bothered to read forum rules or Facebook group rules then then what chance are they going to learn this

Exactly that.

Me, too! This can get really annoying really quickly. I even searched for a solution to this specifically. Perhaps not a bad idea for browsers to introduce the function to edit the type-in URLs and let us delete undesirable ones.

This is actually news to me. Not sure what they are planning to do with this extension. Seems odd for it to not really be announced.
