Have you ever wondered that a Chrome Extension ID is basically something like "pjkljhegncpnkpknbcohdijeoejaedia", a 32 long alphabetic characters identifier that uniquely identify a Chrome Extension.
At the very beginning of Chrome though, this identifier could also contain some numbers. And in some certain cases, it could contain only numbers. Ok... what's the issue here?
As a matter of fact, it turned out that Chrome would consider the full-numeric Chrome Extension ID as an IP address.
Instead of tweaking the net stack, Google Chrome Team decided to use [a-p] encoding instead of [0-9a-f].
Lullaby of PI from the Movie Life of Pi
Oh my love
Oh the delight of my eyes
would you not sleep my love?
are you the peacock or the plumage of the peacock?
are you the cuckoo or the cry of the cuckoo?
are you the moon or the light of the moon?
are you the eyelashes, or the dream?
are you the flower or the nectar?
are you the fruit or the sweetness?
