No browser changes the address field's color based on special 
characters, as far as I know. (You may be thinking of Firefox using 
punycode encoding, not colors, to show possibly-misleading Unicode 
URLs.) But Firefox, Epiphany, and Konqueror all make the address field 
yellow when visiting an https: URL.

Some browsers make a form field yellow if it was filled in 
automatically from the browser's autofill function. We avoid adding 
other background colors to text fields in Launchpad, because it would 
often make the fields look disabled.
