Someone feels HTTPs is wrong for some reasons. Someone simply doesn't care.
But we are all obliged, for a reason or for another, to have something to do with it.
e.g. if you refuse it, you are unplugged for the most of the new Internet.
That is the point.

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

Windows XP and Windows 7 need to die ... Oh, I see. Because you don't like those programs, all the people who are happy with that software can get Yes, that is the point. You have worked hard to choose, buy, configure, and learn all the tools in your toolbox, you are happy with it and damn producti...

So the future of the new Internet v2.1 will look like a tale by Philip K.

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

Don't underestimate the influence of Google and Facebook. Since its creation in 2004, Facebook has grown into a worldwide network of over 1,7 million subscribers, and the mobile technology, on the other hand, has made possible a much greater reach of the Internet, increasing the number of Internet u...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

Browing an http-forum has never hurt anyone, even if it's a "red-lock" for today standards. I wish it was satire, Hame. Anyway, someone of those allows you to *choose* the authentication between Facebook and Google; based on what I usually need to access, it's usually a common practice for...

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

For Chrome on XP those are becoming a "no-go" :roll:

Btw, it's also irritating when you need a datasheet, or when you want to read a paper, and the website complains that it's mandatory to use HTTPs and authenticate through Facebook :roll:

Re: doomed - use! HTTPS Everywhere - google explained why

HTTP or HTTPS. Users are now of two kinds: those who still click on a link without caring at the red-lock, and those who only look at links with green-lock. In their mind everything is not green-lock is insecure, thus to be avoided.

A lot of older URLs will be no more visited.

lot of ethernet cards, 10/100 and 1000 Mbps (Western Europe)

I have a few and different net cards; they are all PCI-32bit. Some are brand-new, in their boxes. Some are second hand (of course, tested). I'd like to shift-out the stuff out of my caravan one-shot. As usual, I don't have a decent digital camera :roll: if you are interested, you can send me a PM an...
