Previously Google use to convert IDN addresses to Punny code in address bar,today I found that now they are not converting IDN addresses to Punny Code.That is nice.

Re: Google now supports IDN in chrome

I think that they always did this but only for the languages that your browser was set to.

Excellent!!!!! Well spotted!

For a long time I have had a heap of languages set in preferences in my OS X Chrome in order to whitelist those language IDNs. Upon seeing your post I removed all languages from my chrome preferences with the exception of english. The IDNs I have tried so far all now correctly display in Unicode instead of punycode even though they are no longer explicitly whitelisted.

I hope all browsers now do the same

Re: Google now supports IDN in chrome

very important news.
Chrome is the default browser for all android phones, and leads over Firefox and Safari on PC's so it is nice to get good news for IDN's since Verisign's bonehead blunders.

Hopefully will raise awareness of the existence of IDN.

Re: Google now supports IDN in chrome

The change in Google Chrome Browser IDN policy change happened in version 51. The core sentence from their new IDN policy is:-

Starting with Google Chrome 51, whether or not to show hostnames in Unicode is determined in a manner independent of the language settings (the Accept-Language list)
and similar to what Firefox does.


For full details see https://www.chromium.org/developers/...-google-chrome

The release dates for version 51 were

2016-05-25 (Linux, OS X and Windows)
2016-06-01 (iOS)
2016-06-01 (Android)
