Just came across this, don't know if its a feature or a bug. Basically if you don't type out http on a link in the markdown, it does not get converted to the link.

[Link](google.com) => Link

does not work, while

[Link](http://google.com) => Link

I feel that if I am using the inline markdown link syntax then I know that I'm creating a link. So irrespective of that fact that the link is correct (http), I want it to be formatted as a link.


This is correct and by design.

If you want a link, be explicit about the link protocol.

(hint: ftp:// works too.. as does https://)
