Google Calendar gets more secure URL

Google announced that the main URL for the Google Calendar web app will be changing. In the next few weeks, it will transition fromhttps://www.google.com/calendar/ to the simpler calendar.google.com

There seems to be few complications resulting from this largely cosmetic change on the part of Google and its new umbrella company, Alphabet. First, Chrome extensions that depend on the old Calendar URL might not work properly if developers don’t make the necessary updates. And second, people who elect to get “gentle notifications” from Google Calendar will have to give the app permission in order for it to work again under the new URL.
