Google Chrome update should make it safer than ever


A new Chromium code update has revealed that Google is set to make a subtle security change to its Chrome web browser that delivers major security improvements. The code suggests that Google Chrome will soon attempt to connect to the HTTPS version of a website by default when users leave out the security protocol altogether.

Currently, if you leave out the security protocol when browsing, as most do when typing in a web address, Chrome will first try the insecure or HTTP version of the site. Then, when sites do have a secure version, a redirect will occur taking individuals to the HTTPS version. Chrome will then make a record of the HTTPS version and jump straight there next time the user navigates to the same domain.
