Do quotes matter?

It is mentioned that I can use single or double quotes in the url function. But I figured that it even works wihout any quotes. Has this changed since this lesson was made or are there cases where I could potentially run into problems if I don't use quotes? For example with a different browser (using Chrome)?

I know, seems like a small thing, but I like to know these things :)

Hi Katsumi,

in most cases, it shouldn't really matter but to be safer you can use quotes if in cases you need to use a special character in your URL. :-)


Thank you for your answer and especially for that link, got me even more detailed infos ;)
