I have currently setup a website with a ssl cert which does not support wildcards and points to the bare domain. Upon testing the URL on different browsers I noticed that when requesting the domain with the www subdomain (https://www ... ), which is not supported by the certificate, gets a response in chrome. So I looked up the requested url in the dev tools and found that chrome does request the url without the www subdomain. Is this normal behavior for Chrome?
On other browsers this behavior is not occurring. In Firefox and Internet Explorer I get the expected certificate error.
