google web search ssl beta https june 2010

Google has enabled SSL-support for web search. Not a day too soon.

This may cost them some CPU time, but they’ll keep their user data more private.

[…] The number one reason for not upgrading was the new location bar, and the fact that it delved into people’s bookmark collections to suggest sites as they typed.”
