MikeGoogle Chrome Address Bar Could Soon Default To HTTPS

Quote:It has emerged that the Google Chrome address bar may default to HTTPS. As reported by 9to5Google, Google is working on an experiment that will automatically try to connect to the HTTPS versions of website URLs. This is instead of the insecure HTTP version.

Google Chrome is no stranger to new updates and experiments with its platform. Most recently in December Chrome made it possible to sign in and save passwords without syncing. The company claimed that this provides more seamless payments and password management for users.

Just a month prior to this Google Chrome also brought out a new update with a number of features that users were rather happy with. Google Chrome 87 claims to launch 25-per cent faster and load pages 7-per cent faster to the elation of most users.

This new experiment with the Google Chrome address bar is an interesting one though. HTTPS has grown over the last few years as a secure minimum standard for most sites. Given Chrome now displays 'not secure' when you are on a standard HTTP site it is hardly surprising they are making it their default.
