It was announced that the popular Chrome browser developed by Google will use the HTTPS protocol by default from version 90.
Updated Google Chrome (starting with version 90) will reportedly better protect user data with a new function. This is about Chrome using the https:// prefix as the default protocol in the address bar.
This change that Google will make to its Chrome browser will not only improve security, but will also have a positive effect on the upload speed of sites using the HTTPS protocol. It is a fact that users who browse sites by manually typing URLs rarely write the prefix of http:// or https://. In this case, in older versions of Chrome, the browser automatically added http:// if the user visited the site for the first time.
It will be available for all platforms
By default, the browser will now start using https://, a more secure protocol that protects users by encrypting traffic. Chrome 90 will automatically switch to HTTP when visiting sites that do not yet support HTTPS, without the user having to take any additional action.
Distribution of the new browser structure will begin shortly for desktops and Android devices. The iOS version of Chrome 90 will be released later.
