Google Chrome will get an HTTPS-Only Mode for secure browsing
#1
Quote:Google is working on adding an HTTPS-Only Mode to the Chrome web browser to protect users' web traffic from eavesdropping by upgrading all connections to HTTPS.

This new feature is now being tested in the Chrome 93 Canary preview releases for Mac, Windows, Linux, Chrome OS, and Android



How to test it right now
If you want to test this experimental feature right now, you will have to first enable the "HTTPS-Only Mode Setting" flag by going to chrome://flags/#https-only-mode-setting.
This adds the "Always use secure connections" option to the browser's security settings which, once enabled, will set up Chrome to automatically upgrade all navigation to HTTPS and display alerts before loading websites that don't support it.
The HTTPS upgrades will be automatic with no warnings to allow you to browse the Internet without interruptions over a secure connection wherever possible.



Protection from MITM attacks, traffic tampering

By upgrading all connections to websites to HTTPS, Google Chrome will protect users from man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks trying to snoop on data exchanged with Internet servers over the unencrypted HTTP protocol.
