This is not possible - you would have to create your own plugin since this is such a bespoke request I doubt anyone else will! –  Dave Rook Sep 14 '12 at 12:58

To change it in Chrome would require an extension. I am not aware of any way that do that specifically.

However, there is a solution that would have the same end result, but not the desired effect of changing the URLs text.

You can accomplish this by editing the hosts file. The hosts file lets you map an existing IP, hostname, of DNS name to one of your choice.

The advantage of editing the hosts file is that it will work on any connection made by your machine. It takes precedence over DNS, and even a direct IP connection.

Here is a simple guide on editing a hosts file in Windows and Linux.
