Board » General Discussion » Chrome browser to tag non-HTTPS sites.

"For the past several years, we’ve moved toward a more secure web by strongly advocating that sites adopt HTTPS encryption. And within the last year, we’ve also helped users understand that HTTP sites are not secure by gradually marking a larger subset of HTTP pages as “not secure”. Beginning in July 2018 with the release of Chrome 68, Chrome will mark all HTTP sites as “not secure”.

That's only 5 months away. I use chrome a lot, especially for SOL. They will probably run a notice that the site is not secure and ask if you want to proceed. Still it could be a nuisance if one is in a hurry to change course to avoid BBQ.
I'm not a coder so I don't really know what it takes to switch addresses. Just think it might be important.
As far as I understand, they will put "not secure" in the address bar, nothing that will interfere normal browsing.
