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.

No Real Downside

There's no real downside to this that I see. While we'd all love greater security than this provides, and it obviously doesn't keep Google from recording what we're up to, it is an extra layer of security at pretty much no cost. I switched my browser to using the new https search immediately upon finding out about it.

You lose the image search, but being aware of that, it's easy to find and use, and it'll probably end up being available with https soon enough anyway.

I see no real downside to this. If anything, it would be nice if more sites used https.
