When I visit my homepage https://example.com/ in a web browser, the trailing slash doesn't appear in the URL when I view it in the browser address bar:
However, if I now copy the address from the browser address bar (which is https://example.com) and then paste it out in my text editor, I get a trailing slash appear:
Why is the trailing slash absent when I view the URL in the browser address bar, yet not absent when I copy and paste that same URL? I don't believe
.htaccess rules can explain this behaviour.
