Google Looking at the past few week of Google news, you'll be forgiven for thinking Google doesn't do anything else beyond making Android. While there's sexier stuff going on within Google, the company is also still trying to improve its core user service: search. They've launched encrypted search today, and it will be rolled out across the world in the coming days.

I'll replace any http address with an https at the first given opportunity. Cleartext protocols like http, ftp, telnet, ftp, pop, smtp, snmp must al die.. die.. die.. die.. there is no excuse for not using encrypted protocols these days.

(OSNews, Techrepublick, I'm looking squarely at you with your http login forms. >:| )

I say, address the BS of overpriced third party validation certificates and get the cleartext protocols off the network for good.
