Google Wants HTTP Sites To Declare Themselves Safe

HTTP (Hypertext transfer protocol) is generally considered useful while navigating the web and the assumption is true to a certain extent. But it’s equally true that this is an insecure system prone to intrusion by hackers and other notorious elements.Gigabit-Internet service in Austin priced for $70 per month by Google

To tackle this problem, Google has decided to come up with a radical solution. It is asking all HTTP websites to declare themselves unsafe so that developers use the secure and encrypted HTTPS.

By promoting this endeavor, Google wishes to showcase to web users in general that HTTP is not a safe way to browse the internet. Google’s proposal, if implemented, will bring a radical change in the way the internet is used. Three site classifications: a) Secure or fully functional HTTPS systems; b) Dubious or functional HTTPS with authentication errors; and c) Non-secure or standard HTTP and HTTPS with outdated protocols will be the order of the day.

However, it does not mean that Chrome will disallow users from accessing such sites but will indicate that sensitive information should not be transmitted here due to third party intrusion being a real probability.

If adopted in the real sense, this proposal of Google could bring a drastic change in way the internet is being used currently. Details of this project have been posted on The Chromium Projects website for internet users to check the viability of the proposal.
