Trailing slash

Here’s one way fairly reliable way to tell the writing of a Windows user from a Mac user: Windows users tend to omit trailing slashes from URLs.

It’s not 100% reliable, but I’ve noticed it’s pretty reliable.

A Windows user will type: http://www.example.com

A Mac user will type: http://www.example.com/

Same with sub-folders...

Windows user: http://www.example.com/some/sub/folder

Macintosh user: http://www.example.com/some/sub/folder/
