Quote:Google today announced the second step in its plan to mark all HTTP sites as non-secure in Chrome. Starting in October 2017, Chrome will mark HTTP sites with entered data and HTTP sites in Incognito mode as non-secure.

HTTPS is a more secure version of the HTTP protocol used on the internet to connect users to websites. Secure connections are widely considered a necessary measure to decrease the risk of users being vulnerable to content injection (which can result in eavesdropping, man-in-the-middle attacks, and other data modification). Data is kept secure from third parties, and users can be more confident they are communicating with the correct website.

With the release of Chrome 56 in January 2017, Google’s browser started marking HTTP pages that collect passwords or credit cards as “Not Secure” in the address bar. Since then, Google has seen a 23 percent reduction in the fraction of navigations to HTTP pages with password or credit card forms on Chrome for desktop. Chrome 62 (we’re currently on Chrome 58) will take this to the next level.

Kudos JR, KB went https at a good time. A lot of sites are going to have to play catch up soon.

The major sites are already use https, but there are many that have not switched.
https://www.flickr.com/ works for photos and https://giphy.com/ usually has any gif you can imagine. both work here.

The Linux version of Firefox has already been doing that.

yup.gif From a security standpoint, it was something that needed done. I expect most sites to follow suit soon.
