Google is Successful in Introducing HTTPS to Chrome 69

Google Chrome and all other popular browsers such as Mozilla Firefox have been trying to get web developers to switch to HTTPS for a long time now. The reason behind this being that the classic HTTP has lots of security flaws and that it puts the user’s data at risk. Luckily, it seems like Google has managed to convince web developers that going with HTTPS is the right thing to do because Google’s reports are showing that more than 82% of all Chrome pages in the US are loaded via HTTPS instead of HTTP.

HTTPS Websites

People who enjoy surfing the web don’t have anything to worry about moving to HTTPS from HTTP. This change is not going to affect them in any bad way and in fact, it will do the exact opposite. For example, Google Chrome users who are accessing a website that loads via HTTPS will see a “Secure” tag next to the website’s URL.

That little tag is highlighted in green and it’s a great way of telling if the said website is secure or not. Moreover, the secure tag also shows that the user’s data is being encrypted and that it is not going to be sent in plain text like HTTP does.

Google Promises Change

Now that more and more websites are starting to use HTTPS, Google plans on adding some small changes to improve the user experience that Google Chrome offers. Firstly, Google is planning to remove the green coloring and secure tag from Chrome 69’s UI (user interface). This is not going to change how secure the browser is, and it will just make the UI look cleaner.

Google to Add New Notifications

The Android parent also wants to add new notifications such as “not secure” and “!” which are going to let Google Chrome fans know when the website that they are accessing is not secure and that their data is in a vulnerable spot.
