Chrome will soon mark all unencrypted pages as ‘not secure’

Google’s Chrome browser will soon flag every site that doesn’t use HTTPS encryption. Starting in July, with the launch of Chrome 68, Chrome will mark all HTTP sites as ‘not secure’ and prominently highlight this in its URL bar.

It has marked this site as not secure. I doubt it matters.

It still loads. It's easy to resolve in the settings with an exception if they start blocking it. It would probably come up with a prompt asking if I wanted to add that exception, and do it for me.

At some point, it will start to matter if you try to access http:// sites with Chrome.

This actually started a couple years ago. This warning to me means that come July, marking exceptions in Chrome won't be an option anymore, or far less of one.

Not only that, Google itself started to mark down sites in page rank search engine results that don't have SSL encryption. Learn how this stuff works, why it works the way it does, and why it's important. And yes, RFL needs to update to https.

They won't do that. They'll huff and they'll puff but they won't blow it down.

There's no reason for them to not allow a user to make exceptions when they want to.

And if they do that, and if it still matters, I will get a different browser on my windows machine. And I will not buy another Chromebook. So they have plenty of incentive to not do that.


I'll make them the butt of Pope jokes. :|

Uh-huh. I bet. But why stop there, when you can just sit down, dust off your Windows 95 box with Netscape Navigator 2 on it.

My Windows 95 boxes with Netscape Navigator 2, and older boxes than that went to the dump when I left Montana in 2000. There were six or eight boxes there, it was quite a heap.
